Today is Thursday, Oct. 10 and here are five things to know in Montgomery County.
1. It’s World Mental Health Day: Annually, World Mental Health Day raises awareness and mobilizes efforts to support mental health.
When everything seems dark – it's important to appreciate the sparkles of light. It can be almost anything: A call from a friend, a long walk, a good meal, or simply a sunny day. Maybe this post? Help inspire others by sharing what makes you feel better when you’re down 💚 pic.twitter.com/UWTSYjkmIj
