August 2022 is Mental Health Month in the City of Loveland.
Mayor Kathy Bailey declared August 2022 as “Mental Health Month” in the City of Loveland, per the suggestion of local resident Tori Morrison. This is to help raise awareness of the national 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline that went live July 16, 2022. (Dial 9-8-8, like you would dial 9-1-1.)
Be on the look-out for several initiatives happening around the city this month:
- 988 awareness signs displayed in homes & local businesses. Order yours from RP Diamond Printing & Embroidery.
- The 8/26 Loveland vs. Anderson Varsity Football game will have a “Mental Health Awareness” theme.
- New banner installed at LHS football stadium featuring the 988 number.
