County Commissioners Proclaim May as Mental Health Awareness Month

On May 3, 2022 the Blaine County Board of Commissioners passed Proclamation 2022-03 declaring May as Mental Health Awareness Month. For the past 8 years, Blaine County has signed this proclamation to shine a light on mental health challenges, fight stigma, provide support, educate the public, and advocate for equitable access to care. 

The Commissioners also call upon the citizens, government agencies, public and private institutions, businesses, and schools in Blaine County to recommit our community to increasing awareness and understanding of mental health, and seek to further educate our residents on the steps they can take to protect their mental health. 

We would like to give a special thank you to those that spoke during today's meeting, and to the Bluebirds from Wood River High School. Two members of the Bluebirds joined our meeting and read the short stories that they wrote. These stories will be distributed to elementary school students to provide encouragement.  

We hope everyone will take this as an opportunity to come together and support each other.
