Our goal is to offer the Upper Valley Community opportunities for prevention, education and supportive conversation around mental health and wellness topics. We seek to share and learn together about a wide range of topics impacting our individual and collective mental health.
“Sharing what you’ve been feeling and having that validated by others is just a great feeling. Thank you for creating this group. It’s inclusive and so helpful for so many.“
Monthly Community Conversations
Mark your calendar for the first Tuesday of the month at 6pm. Future topic details to come, and your input is always welcome!
- March – There is no community conversation scheduled this month due to town meetings. We encourage you to attend, engage with your community and civic responsibility. For Lyme residents, our normal meeting night, is when Little Town Meeting will be held in the Lyme School gymnasium.
- April 2nd – TBD. More info to come soon!
