If you've been feeling anxious or depressed lately, you're not alone. The Covid Pandemic has taken an enormous mental toll on people nationwide and globally. During Mental Health Awareness Month, we want to remove the stigma associated with seeking help. We're providing resources for you to speak with peers or professionals who can share experiences and offer guidance for coping. It's okay to not feel okay.
Did you know that pets are good for your health? See how good you feel when you meet our Pet of the Week, or any of the other adorable, adoptable pets at the Humane Society of Broward County. Click the pic to see more about this week's pet and how to connect with HSBC.
