In praising CABS' commitment to self-care and community wellness, Senator Parker stated, "It is an honor to be part of an event that highlights the importance of self-care, particularly during these challenging times. CABS has consistently demonstrated dedication to addressing our community's evolving needs, and I commend its efforts to destigmatize mental health issues. By prioritizing self-care, we can build stronger, more resilient communities."


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities, CABS remains committed to addressing the changing needs of the community by recognizing the significance of mental health in the healthcare continuum.
