Ketchikan Mental Health Services
By Carol Alley


March 15, 2008

Our silence as a community regarding the lack of adequate mental health and substance abuse services is deafening. Those most in need likely lack the ability to voice this concern for themselves. Those providing services in our community, and the ancillary staff working with them, find themselves overworked and under-appreciated.

Can we dialogue as a community how to better provide these needed services? Can we show appreciation for those heroes who help us when we feel so alone? Who might be there to catch us if we fall, in our future?

Let us not be silent.
