"Because our community is hurting when it comes to mental health. We have a large group in our population, especially here in jackson county that are wandering the streets and that families are dealing with. And sometimes families just dont know how to deal with it. And so we want to make sure that we get the information out to the community" Ronstance Pittman, Jackson County NAACP President.

For more information on mental health resources, call the Jackson County NAACP at (850)696-0599.
