FORT HALL — Counseling & Family Services hosted a Pajama Fun Run/Walk Tuesday, May 14.
Krissy Broncho CFS Manager/Clinical Coordinator spoke before the run explaining that May is Mental Health month and wanted to let everybody know that we can support one another.
“People do get severe mental illnesses and they do need to be treated. They shouldn’t be afraid to go to the Counseling & Family Services building, mental health is not something scary,” said Broncho. “It is just something we learn how to manage.”
