How are YOU doing? 

Posted April 5, 2024

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and in most cases, it is more important. It is a high priority at DC 16 to help bring awareness to your mental health and stability. Just as illness can take a toll on your physical being, life can take a toll on your mind as well. Life isn’t always easy so I just wanted to take a moment to remind you that we are here for you. I am always here to help my brothers and sisters no matter what they might be going through and I can be reached easily by phone (707-644-2249) or by stopping by the office.
