As a dad to three kids growing up in this digital age, Andy is keenly aware of the importance of increasing access to mental health care. It’s why he recently joined the board of directors of the Second Wind Fund after working with them for many years. The example set by the Second Wind Fund is an important one: Jefferson County must continue to partner with it and other innovative treatment providers to expand the levels of support we’re able to provide to those who need it most.
There’s a lot of work we can do at the county level, in partnership with the state, to help a lot of people. But we’re able to exponentially grow our impact through work with outside organizations to ensure that everybody who needs mental health care can and will get good, timely, and easy access. Lives are on the line, especially among our teenagers, veterans, and medically underserved.
