“I want those of us dealing with mental health issues to know that there are organizations out there that can help. You can find treatment and support on our resources page and community calendar,” she said.

The mental health association is also debuting another new initiative with its first Joy + Connection Club meeting on Dec. 12 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Wildflour Bakery in Pawtucket.
