(Oct 20, 2021)

“The expo is designed to bring professionals, vendors and residents together in one room to talk about the services that offer the help and resources needed by everyone,” Zabel said. “For too long, a stigma has often been associated with addressing mental health, but I think we’ve finally reached a time when almost everyone understands finding the professional help you need to address a problem is the best way to deal with any concern."
