Celebrate Juneteenth
Juneteenth celebrates the end of slavery, although it came more than two years after slavery had officially “ended.” As our community, and our nation, continue to wrestle with the echoes of our history, remember that help is available for trauma, anxiety, depression and other behavioral health concerns. Visit our Care Network page today for resources.
Celebrate Pride Month
About one-in-five U.S. adults know someone who uses pronouns other than he or she. Normalizing all pronouns can ensure that everyone feels supported.

If you need support, text ‘4hope’ to 741741 or call the Trevor Project Hotline at 1-866-488-7386.
