What is mental health?  A dictionary definition of mental health is: a person’s condition with regard to their psychological, emotional and social well-being. Every living human being has mental health.  It affects how we think, feel and act. It helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices.  Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. (mentalhealth.gov)  It may affect a person’s ability to relate to others and function on a daily basis.
1 in 4 adults experiences a mental health condition every year. 1 in 20 lives with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

It is that time of year again where we need to remember to check ourselves and pets for ticks. Please read the tick watch newsletter that was put out by the CDC. It has lots of great information and great links. Please visit our page to read the report at: http://healthyoxfordhills.org/tick-check/
Keeping kids safe around prom and graduation season is a community effort that involves everyone. Sending the message that this is a time to remember with a clear mind and not alcohol or other drugs can go a long way. If your child is participating in these land mark events consider getting together with other parents and giving them a way to celebrate chemical free and enjoy the night.

The planters for Edible Main Street have been planted, but need time to grow. Look for signs when they will be ready to pick from.
Business and residences down Main Street: please let us know if you are interested in helping to take care of the planters.  Thank you!
