  • St Raphael's Third Graders Gift Birthday Bags to Food Bank

    A.J. Etherington, The Courier|May 2, 2018

    Sheila Hogan, Department of Public Health and Human Services|May 2, 2018

They avoided regular checkups and screenings, and instead, were forced to the emergency room to access expensive, difficult-to-treat care. When you’re not healthy, it’s difficult to stay on the job and be a productive member of the workforce. Thankfully, in Monta...

  • On Curing the Stigma

    Mary Hughes, Valley Care Coalition Member|May 2, 2018

    Dear Community, The Valley Care Coalition would like to bring to light and raise discussion and awareness about mental health stigma. Have you ever wondered where stigma comes from? That’s a complicated question? It’s almost like asking where do differences in racial prejudice, political views, religious preferences, or sports team allegiances come from. Turns out we are influenced by our family, friends, the media, our culture, our environment and a whole host of factors. Rather than figure out where stigma begins, let’s do our best to educate...
