About

The dialogue about mental health issues is heating up, with an emphasis on public policy and government intervention. But more important is the individual; and the impact of anxiety, mild depression, compulsive behaviors and blindness on their daily lives. There are two ladies in New Britain - both are receiving proper medical care and are not a threat to others or self, but their blindness and their anxieties make it difficult for them to make friends or keep them. If you can read, shop or sort mail for either of these ladies and be patient and understanding of the struggles they face this opportunity is for you. All it takes to make a difference is
