The business community continues to recognize and support the work of the Springfield-based Mental Health Association.
Mental Health Association president Cheryl Fasano thanked Allied Flooring and Paint’s president, Mario Tedeschi, for his $5,000 donation supporting MHA programs.
Tedeschi told 22News, he supports MHA because of the help they provide people impacted by mental illness. “With all the issues from opioid addiction and mental health, it kinda ties in what’s happening today, and I think it’s a great organization.”
“It takes a village,” Cheryl Fasano said. “It’s not something we can do on our own, and so we appreciate the support of the businesses and the community.”
Fasano told 22News that a lot of times people diagnosed with addiction issues also have mental health problems.
