Special events at Thresholds are always a great time – but they’re also more than that. They’re an opportunity for our supporters to connect with our work, each other, our members, and our staff. Each of you are a critical piece of building a better mental health safety net in our communities so that everyone has access to the care they need. We hope that you can join us at an upcoming event!
