Apr - Healthy Relationships


Happy Mental Health Tuesday Normans!


Relationships and human connections are essential for our emotional well-being. We naturally seek closeness to others— We need to connect and build relationships. Healthy relationships, whether romantic, friendships or familial, can help make life healthier.  However, when social relationships are unhealthy or broken, it can negatively impact our well-being.


Northwestern Medicine Psychologist Sheehan D. Fisher, PhD, stresses that relationships shouldn't come down to just one relationship, "Instead, focus on having a network of social support with a variety of different types of relationships — from romantic, to friendship to associate — to hold up your well-being and quality of life."


April is “Healthy Relationships” month. 


Our motto for this month is “Strong Connections = Strong Minds”. Please join us in our April Support programs.
