The Cass County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota, has announced a series of public safety announcements for a mental health awareness campaign. The campaign will begin Tuesday and runs through the end of 2020.

"These are tough times, no question about it. It doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are, or where you came from, everyone needs a little help sometimes," Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner said in a press release. "Depression and mental illness is not a weakness; it’s called being a human."

Officials encourage everyone to take care of their mental health, and to those who may be struggling, please know that you are not alone. Get help today by calling (701) 271-1618, because mental health matters.
