In a state as rural and sparsely populated as Wyoming, it can be hard to find the resources and support needed to aid in mental health. Many feel they are on their own when dealing with their health, or perhaps embarrassed for seeking help. Others might believe the services are too expensive, or that there are no programs within their community. The Hughes Charitable Foundation hopes to break down these barriers to mental health by providing current and relevant information about state-wide resources, as well as promoting understanding and community connection through sharing stories and experiences from other Wyomingites.
