May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Nutley Family Service Bureau (NFSB) is proud to join a national movement to fight stigma, educate people about mental health disorders, and let people know that help is available. “We want people to be aware that everyone experiences a mental health issue at some point in their life,” said Staela Keegan, licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor (LCADC), and Clinical Director at NFSB. “We all experience grief, loss, and high levels of stress. It’s nothing to be ashamed of and you don’t have to deal with it by yourself.”
