This beautiful quilt is being made by two local quilters from Port Kent, and donated to the North Country Out of the Darkness Walk. With over 60 combined years of experience, their creative pattern design is meant to symbolize the dark colors transforming into lighter ones in the spirit of the “Out of the Darkness” theme. We appreciate their generous donation and will contribute all funds raised from the raffle towards the Walk.

Congratulations to the newest group of Essex County residents certified in Mental Health First Aid! With the gorgeous backdrop of the lake as the view, they spent all day yesterday in Lake Placid learning about common mental health disorders, signs and symptoms, risk factors, how to recognize a mental health crisis, and what to do to assist a person experiencing a crisis until the situation can be deescalated and how to refer to appropriate treatment. For more information about Mental Health First Aid, visit mentalhealthfirstaid.org.
Mental Health First Aid training, along with other mental health and suicide prevention training, is brought to Essex County by a grant through Senator Betty Little‘s office. Without these generous grant funds, the Coalition would not be able to provide community education, outreach, and many other services. Many thanks to Senator Little for making suicide prevention and mental health a priority.
Our next class is Tuesday, July 25 in Lewis. There are a couple spots available if you are interested in attending. Register at https://mhainessex.wufoo.com/forms/mhfa-lewis-72517/
