Mental health, older adults featured on 'Morning Show'
Did you receive a stimulus check but don’t need the extra help? Are you aware that along with a national health crisis the United States faces a mental health and addiction crisis? President Biden recently requested $2.5 billion in funding to address the nation’s worsening mental illness and addiction crisis, but we need help in our community today.
For many people, the stimulus checks have been a vital lifeline to keep them afloat but for many others, the relief does not help them get through the day dealing with the stress of COVID along with addiction and mental health challenges. Along with rising suicide numbers, early data from the CDC says that drug overdoses through July 2020 rose by 24% from 2019.
Fortunately, Link House has been able to remain operational during COVID thanks to a dedicated staff, committed board of directors, and a community that cares about its vulnerable neighbors. You don’t have to look far to find someone who is struggling to stay on the road to recovery or make it through another day full of stress and uncertainty.
It would make a world of difference if you can send us your stimulus check to help a community member who needs help. Maya Angelou asked people to “be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.” If you or someone you care about is struggling, call our Center for Behavioral Health & Addiction Treatment Services at 978-834-6583.
Thank you in advance for being a ray of hope.

Wow, what a long strange trip it’s been. When I came out of my daze, I found a 50 year old man that was lost and had hit my bottom. Alcohol had helped drag me to the depth of my despair. Three trips to rehabs and I drank within days of my exits. Why?
Here I was, a father of two great kids, I had a great career and had made some decent money. I own a nice house in a nice community. I am in a loveless marriage, but I am not the first or the last. I am a good, kind and caring person. Why and how did I turn out this way? Why couldn’t I just stop and put down the bottle?
