“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”
Jack Kornfield

If you are reading this note, you very likely are someone interested in advancing your community and the people in it. This is an important and uplifting goal; it also requires that you take great care of yourself. Keeping focused on advancing entire communities while inspiring work, can also be challenging–whether to one’s time and treasure, energy or mental health.

Specific to mental health and addiction, we felt it important to share that the State of Ohio has just launched a new resource for anyone who is in crisis. Ohioans can now dial or text 988 to get connected with a licensed counselor. Learn more here.

Please use this resource if you need it, and share it with your networks.

Have a great week, and remember to take the time to care for not only those around you, but yourself. ​​​​​​
