Each Mind Matters Overseas

A huge shout out to the American Samoa Behavioral Health Services Division who kicked off Mental Health Matters Month with a lime green roadside “wave” saying hello to passing drivers and reminding them that Each Mind Matters. We love to see the mental health movement spread outside the continental U.S.!
