Our information revolution and post-industrial society has created more service industries than ever before with an emphasis on community wellness and taking care of each other being a common goal.
The African proverb “it takes a village” often refers to the myriad of people, their actions and collaborative efforts and how it benefits their community. Although traditionally those in emergency services and/or public safety are recognized as helpers and often heroes, sometimes other professionals and lay persons are able to put their talents and specialties into helping others.
Musicians, farmers, scientists, survivors and caregivers all do their part to make a difference. Here’s to those who make it happen:
- Threads of Hope: International Survivors of Suicide Loss
- Georgia Farm helps struggling veterans find connections and belonging as they care for the land and animals
- Anti-Inflammatory Agents Can Effectively And Safely Curb Major Depressive Symptoms
- Musicians being upfront about his own vulnerabilities — including dealing with mental health struggles — through his music and in person
- The “good road map” to being a caregiver. Provided by AARP Family Caregiving: The Military Caregiving Guide
Thanks and gratitude to our village!
