May 2021 Enewsletter

A note from our Executive Director

2020 was a year of change and growth for all of us.

The collective experience throughout the pandemic has shown that the mental health needs of our friends, families, and neighbors are greater now than ever before. Mental Health America recently released a report that showed in 2020, roughly 79% of those surveyed showed symptoms of moderate to severe anxiety.

The increased demand has shown that the programs, services, guidance, and support The Family Counseling Center offers are vitally important.

May is Mental Health Awareness month and the perfect time to highlight the work we’ve done over the past year. In 2020, our staff worked with 6,500 clients. We became a certified telehealth provider allowing our reach to clients to expand and our engagement numbers increase.

We are thankful to our community, our partners, our staff and to you for your support throughout the past year. Your advocacy and donations help us greatly as we continue to fulfill our mission of providing superior care.

Best wishes,



May is Mental Health Awareness Month

The Family Counseling Center is joining with mental health professionals across the country to recognize and promote May as Mental Health Awareness month. First observed in 1949, the goal is to raise awareness and educate the public about strategies for attaining mental health and wellness, as well as the realities of living with mental illness. In addition, Mental Health America (MHA) has released its 2021: The State of Mental Health in America report, finding that the number of individuals suffering from severe anxiety and depression skyrocketed in 2020.
