Re “A Welcome Gift from the Exchange Club”
Bravo to the Exchange Club for helping to support the much needed services provided at the Youth Health Center.
In these tough times, it is more critical than ever that young people be able to access health care, both physical and mental.
Teens are under tremendous pressure. Personal stress, economic uncertainty, and the barrage of “news” (mostly negative) from constant media exposure take their toll.
Mental health often is ignored until a crisis occurs.
Kudos also to Andy Alexander and Diana Hauptman for continuing to work to keep the Center alive. Their commitment to our youth is deeply appreciated.
