Monthly Newsletter | January 2021
Your #HealthyMinds Update
Making it through 2020 has been a true accomplishment for many families, and the new year brings an opportunity to set goals, rethink routines and traditions, and create new memories together. Still, just as we’ve turned a huge corner into 2021, we’ve been reminded of the many challenges we face.

In the spirit of National Mentoring Month, set aside time to talk with the young people in your life about how they're feeling. Whether you're a parent, relative, teacher, or coach, encourage them to set goals for the new year, and check in with them along their journey to reaching them.
