Because home shouldn't hurt.

In order to lead a truly altruistic life, it’s important to take stock of your own mental health, as well as those around you. There are a ton of free resources and tactics you can use to check-in and improve your mental clarity.
My community prides itself on its main street charm. Picturesque small towns dot our county map. We have beautiful lakes, bubbling trout streams, rolling hills, and nature trails for miles. There is an abundance of fresh water, clean air, farms and produce stands. Different houses of worship seem to spring up every block or two, mile or two, and every 10 dirt roads or so. It's the kind of place where neighbors care, veterans are thanked for their service, laws are obeyed, and doors are still held open for the next person heading in or out. It's perfect really except when it's not. For several years, we have been in the top handful of counties across Pennsylvania with the highest rates of substantiated reports of child abuse per capita. Rural, we are. Excused, we are not.
