What to Remember During Suicide Awareness Month

NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness states that this is a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic. Did you know that 1 in 5 adults will experience mental illness this year? And every year, thousands of people die by suicide? This has to end.

Northwest Health Provides Aid to Flood Victims

It’s been a very busy spring/summer here at Northwest Health. With all of the recent flooding happening in our service area (Holt/Andrew/Atchison/Buchanan counties), we have taken action to provide aid through flood relief supplies for victims of the floodwaters. With the help of Direct Relief, Heart2Heart and Clean the World, organizations who provided supplies to us during this natural disaster, and our local United Way, we have been able to help hundreds of flood victims over the last four months.
