Communities That Care (also known as CTC) brings together community members to create a safer, healthier environment for our kids and teens. Anyone in the community can join CTC. Professionals, stay-at-home parents, grandparents, and youth themselves (with parental consent). The more people we have working together, the better! It's free to be a part of CTC.
Whether or not you have children, creating a better environment for our kids is good for the community. Kids who are physically and emotionally healthier grow into healthier adults. This results in an improved local workforce, more stable families, and reduced strain on taxpayer-funded agencies like police and social services.
We invite the participation of all community members. You can be part of the solution by spending just a few hours each month participating in CTC!
We were at Send Silence Packing, hosted by Michigan Tech's Wellness Group on campus! For more than a decade, the Send Silence Packing® exhibit has traveled the country to end the silence that surrounds mental health and suicide and connect visitors with resources for support and action.
Send Silence Packing encourages people to seek out resources for themselves, friends, or loved ones. Trained professionals are on hand at each stop and thousands of mental health resources are distributed.
