Starting Point Behavioral Healthcare marked the month of May as Mental Health Month with a number of activities designed to raise awareness about the issue in the community. Board members, staff and volunteers gave out information about Mental Health First Aid classes and other programs at the annual Shrimp Festival in Fernandina Beach, and the County Commission issued a Proclamation in support of May as Mental Health Month in Nassau County. A large banner in downtown Fernandina Beach is also displayed to raise awareness, and the agency has added a special section on the website with information about mental health. The next Mental Health First Aid class is scheduled for Friday, May 26, and seats are still available. You can sign up for free at
