May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Everyone has mental health. Whether that’s mental health concerns, mental health wellness or somewhere in between.  One’s ability to maintain their mental health can be changed by experiencing chronic stress, anxiety, fear, shame, and sadness that comes with domestic violence and sexual violence.

There are specific diagnoses that are commonly experienced by those who have experienced domestic violence and sexual violence include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety. These diagnoses can impact difficulty with being productive at work, school, with caregiving, establishing and engaging in healthy relationships, and adapting to change and coping with adversity. 

It is important to reach out for help when needed. Here are some ways to promote mental health wellness:
The Haven would like to thank Pearl Boutique and the community for participating in the Shop 'Til It Stops Sale in Kilmarnock. $1,300+ was raised to support individuals and families impacted by domestic violence and sexual violence!
The Haven would like to thank all of our volunteers who have been supporting us! Without their hardwork and dedication to our mission, we would be unable to support individuals and families in need. While April may have ended, The Haven will always be appreciative of our volunteers. Check out some of these snapshots from our Volunteer Appreciation event.
The Easter Bunny came and went. The Haven would like to thank everyone who supported our Easter fundraiser. The money made from it will support our work and mission.
The Haven is hiring for a full-time Office Manager. To view the full listings, please visit:
