As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, I am taking extra time to focus on the things that make me feel thankful. This practice of mindful gratitude has been shown to help with stress and depression.

I am thankful for the many people who support Josselyn through their generous gifts to our mission. Josselyn would not be able to survive and thrive without the philanthropic support we so graciously receive.

Recently, a phenomenal Josselyn therapist, Camilo Morales, said, “One of the incredibly unique things about the Josselyn community is that we keep the client at the center of our work. That might seem obvious, but I’ve been a therapist at other places where the primary focus was on billing and collecting fees. At Josselyn, the focus is on providing quality services focused on the person.”

Josselyn is only able remain focused on our clients because of the gifts we receive.

After the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, comes the opportunity to recognize Giving Tuesday. I invite you to make a gift to support Josselyn’s vision of Mental health for all. Any size gift makes a difference.

With much gratitude for you,
Susan Resko
CEO & President

P.S. I also invite you to learn more about Camilo and his coworker Kate Blaker in this video we recently produced.
