Mental Health Resources

Hello, my name is Greg A. Carswell, Mayor for the City of Waynesboro.  Like many citizens of our fair city, I recognize the importance of maintaining a healthy balance between work and the invaluable time spent with my family living life and having fun.  

Mental Health Awareness is one of the most prevalent issues of our time, and the City of Waynesboro is committed to addressing and improving the mental health concerns of its residents.  The Mayor's Office is well aware of the harmful impact that stress, disappointment and being misunderstood can pose to anyone.  In our continued effort to engage, support and empower individuals to a more holistically positive sense of self, we will maintain links to health care professionals and organizations locally and nationally on our City's website.

Here we can connect you to a number of resources that may potentially have little to no cost.  Take a moment to have a look or refer a friend to our website because everyone can use a little help once in a while...
