In observance of Mental Health Awareness Month this May, RSS team members have come together to support the community by raising mental health awareness and sponsoring local organizations such as Jefferson Center for Mental Health. Last week our agency was honored to support Jefferson Center for Mental Health at their annual benefit: A Night in Tuscany at Baldoria on the Water. We proudly represent Jefferson Center as one of our valued clients, providing them with property and casualty insurance services and support, and we are immensely grateful for the support they offer those struggling in our community.

Jefferson Center offers a wide range of services and resources for those in need of a helping hand. From wellness classes and coaching to substance abuse counseling, Jefferson Center has a program for anyone that might be fighting an internal battle.Jefferson Center also offers FREE Mental Health First Aid classes to the community. The 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course teaches participants how to recognize a range of mental health problems and how to confidently help someone dealing with these issues.
