Savage will present mental health workshops | Savage
When the town of Savage asked for community input on how to use its $3.53 million in spending under the American Rescue Plan Act, they told town officials that there needed free local mental health resources. For example, the town of Savage awarded a grant to NAMI to organize a series of workshops on mental health. More workshops are coming in 2023. All are welcome.
