There is probably nothing as difficult as starting a conversation about someone’s mental health. Our country is facing a challenge of epidemic proportions. It is past time to begin a dialogue with loved ones about self care. The Orland Free Library provides many books and DVDs that could prove very helpful. Many of these are located in the 616 and 618 section of the Library. There are also materials in other areas that could be helpful. With the recent suicides of high-profile individuals, it has never been more relevant. Our own community has had tragic consequences. Don’t be afraid to ask some questions. You might be able to save a life.

This Saturday when you’re out and about buying plants at your
local hardware store or taking your morning walk with the kids
stop by Library Park around 10:00 am – there’s something
“Big” going on over there.
I’ve been told it’s a must see!
