Episode #19: Mental Health Association of Frederick County

Welcome to a themed series of podcasts on Health & Wellness in Frederick for November. I spoke with Shannon Aleshire the CEO of Mental Health Association of Frederick County about their goals, services, and the sets people can take to get help.

This podcast was a very eye-opening interview for me. We cover facts about suicide in Maryland and dispell a few myths as well. It also made me shift focus from just men's health to general wellness. This topic is too complicated to force into a gimmick.

Are in crisis? You can call 2-1-1 to get help. This number is open 24/7.
