From the CEO

It’s my birthday month! I love birthdays and spending time with my family and friends in honor of these special days, no matter whose birthday it is. Not only is September my birthday month but it is a month of important new beginnings with the return to school and a month of plenty as we enjoy the harvest. But it is also a month filled with serious matters. On a national level, we will be commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11 on September 11 mourning the losses and honoring the heroes of that terrible day.

Throughout the month, we’ll also encourage our communities and workplaces to be prepared for an emergency, recognize those in recovery from a substance use disorder and raise awareness about suicide prevention.
