“We want people to know that if they are experiencing a mental illness, there are resources out there that can help. Mental health often has a stigma and people don’t seek the help they need. We want to do our part to raise awareness and funds for these programs.”
“I would like parents to know that if they or their children are experiencing abnormal mental behavior during these especially challenging times, there are resources available to help by phone or online. We are hoping to do our part to bring awareness to and help fund these invaluable programs especially now that schools in Iowa will not be reopening this school year.”Carson King
