[In co-sponsorship of Southborough Youth and Family Services’ Mental Health Awareness Month initiative, MySouthborough will be helping to promote awareness throughout May by sharing a “Mental Note” each day.]

“In real life, mental illness shows up differently in everybody. The media does not represent the complexity of mental illness in general. There’s this sense that it’s just a one-name-fits-everybody, or one-title-fits-everybody.” –

– Kirstin Fawcett, “How Mental Illness is Misrepresented in the Media”

 
If you have any concerns about mental health for yourself or your family, please call SYFS, at 508-481-5676. SYFS offers free mental health services for residents of the town, and can also help refer to outside clinicians as appropriate.
