Self-care: This is a topic that we who work in the mental health / social services fields talk a lot about, but perhaps neglect to act on in our own lives, especially during times when we feel pulled to be available and supportive to our clients, our family, and friends.
Seven Counties Services, the KY National Guard Child and Youth Services, the KY Prevention Promotion Behavioral Health Branch, and Veteran’s Club are announcing a statewide Military Youth Video Contest.

I hope that each of you has had a positive start to 2021 and that you are staying well. Though the holidays looked different last month for many of our clients, you helped put a sparkle in their eyes through your generosity of food, gifts, notes of encouragement, and prayers. Thank you for pouring out your hearts to ensure they had a bright spot in their holidays despite all the challenges they were experiencing.
