UCFS Healthcare launces a Reason to Smile campaign for the month of April

Right now, we all need a reason to smile. 
 
Everyone reading this note is likely aware of the "second pandemic" — the mental health crisis that has shadowed the pandemic health crisis. While our ability to return to a life that we once knew is on the horizon, the toll of the past year is being felt in classrooms, workspaces, and kitchens. No aspect of our society is immune to the stress and anxiety of witnessing the impact of the COVID virus to change, damage, or take lives. 
 
As one of the leading providers of mental health services, UCFS is doing all we can to help our community see the brighter aspects of these darker days. As we wait for the vaccine to reach herd immunity, we are launching a "Reason to Smile" campaign. We are going to share on social media and other platforms, the "better news" happening throughout the region. Whether it is about a member of your staff who is a dedicated volunteer, or a donation you are making to support a local non-profit, UCFS wants to share YOUR reason to smile. 
 
How can you help? Tell us about a "reason to smile," and we will do the rest. Email your reason to jermler@ucfs.org and we will coordinate a time to photograph you with our Reason to Smile emoji. Please be in touch ASAP... more than ever, we all need a reason to smile.
