Woodstock supports Mental Health Awareness Month

In a move that is more timely than ever, given people’s anxiety about being confined to their homes and rising concerns about the future, Woodstock’s town board passed a resolution is support of Mental Health Awareness Month in May.

“People may during this time find themselves in certain situations. There’s no shame in reaching out,” councilman Reggie Earls said. “It does not matter who you are or what your job is. We’re here to help.”

Supervisor Bill McKenna agreed. “Half the battle sometimes is just being able to talk about it. People are starved for conversation,” McKenna said.
