Mental Health Board Director Designate Speaks to Lions about Crisis Text Line

Lion Kathleen Kern, Associate Director and Director Designate of the Lorain County Board of Mental Health, explained the importance of facilitating access to mental health care and the value of the new Crisis Text Line. The Crisis Text Line is designed to get a person through an intense or emotional period of time, but it is not there to serve as counseling or therapy..Any person may need help in coping with a stressful situation. Reach out by text to communicate with someone trained to listen and respond in a method that is private, secure and confidential.  Just text "4HOPE" to 741 741 to access this service, provided by Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. Thanks Lion Kathleen for this very informative program!
