AEHC Cares State Project
AEHC Cares graphic

The AEHC Cares State Project aims to provide mental well-being awareness and education to AEHC members and their communities. AEHC Cares asks that open conversations about mental well-being be had so that the stigma surrounding mental health can be further dissolved, bringing more acceptance and understanding to ourselves and others experiencing mental health struggles.

AEHC Cares does not offer mental health services, though it is encouraged that AEHC members educate themselves about the mental health resources in their communities.

AEHC Cares is a boots-on-the-ground project that asks AEHC members to reach out and find ways to educate and support other community members.
