The days of summer are here. The kids have time off of school and the weather is getting warm. While experts say that having down time with no scheduled activities is a good thing for children, spending the entire summer doing nothing doesn’t sound like a ton of fun.
On Monday many of us had a vacation or a day off of school. It was Memorial Day - a day where we recognize and remember those who lost their lives while serving in the military. Did you observe this day while enjoying a day out of the office? Was there a moment during the day where it dawned on you why you have an extra day to gather with family and friends?

In late March, more than 300 attendees joined together at Blue Harbor to talk openly and honestly about mental health and alcohol and other drug abuse in our community. Participants at this Community Conversation represented all walks of life and sectors including areas of local law enforcement, social services/human services, legislature, education, businesses, nonprofits, health care providers, and of course families and consumers.
