Mental Health Awareness

Millions of Americans live daily with a mental health condition, and deaf people are not immune.  Pepnet 2 recognizes the need for more direct access to programs for people who are deaf or hard of hearing, allowing them to get the help that they deserve.  Each week for the month of May, Pepnet 2 will share resources, personal stories and information through our Facebook and Twitter pages.  Follow us, learn more and help advocate for better access to mental health care!  Click here for more information on NAMI's May is Mental Health Month campaign.  It's time to take action!
