Education and Awareness campaigns aimed at helping reduce the stigma of mental illness were made possible with a $10,000 grant from the Health Sciences Foundation. As well, Adult Mental Health has received some new electronics through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant. The flat screen TV, DVD/VCR player and Nintendo Wii are helping improve patients’ moods, lessen their anxiety and support their relaxation.
