What is on the bucket list for Jon Ansley as he sails into retirement? Long walks, yoga, more time with his lovely wife and grand-kids, and, of course, no meetings! FISH is incredibly sad and excited to announce Jon Ansley's official retirement starting in June. Jon has been an anchor at FISH for almost ten years, with his steady leadership, unwavering dedication and compassion, and sense of humor. We hope to celebrate his retirement sometime this summer! Look for more news of this in June.

Mental Health Awareness Month

Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the United States — more than 43 million people — experiences a mental illness in a given year. Mental illness does not discriminate, affecting men and women, boys and girls, across all ages, races and social classes. The month of May is a time to raise awareness about mental health and help reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. Click here for more information! For local resources, visit Mental Health Partners or Community Reach.
