    BETTER HEALTH PROGRAM

    The Montville Senior Center is offering a FREE Better Health, Mental Health, Program at the Montville Senior Center. Many people find the holidays difficult, or suffer from depression, have anxiety, or just need someone to talk to. Mental Health is a very important part of health care so you can be as healthy as possible! Don’t neglect your mind while taking care of your body! Join a group for discussion sessions or sit down one-on-one with our licensed clinician to talk! This program is made possible with a grant received from Senior Resources with Title III funds made available under the Older Americans Act. Don’t miss out on this great service! It’s never too late to start to take care of yourself—mind, body, spirit! Call for details and/or an appointment!
