NEW EMOTIONAL WELLNESS CAMPAIGN LAUNCH

About half of us will deal with some type of challenge to our emotional wellness over the course of our lifetime. And many of us are faced with serious challenges in our everyday lives. But no one should have to go through tough times alone.   That's why Be Well San Joaquin County was launched.     BeWellSJC.com is available to connect parents with young children with emotional support resources and services to help them thrive.  C ampaign messages will also be shared via radio, digital advertising and social media during the months of May and June. Let's support parents to be at their best... for themselves and their kids!
