This New Year, Make A Resolution To Ask For Help If You Need It

At Spirit 92.9, our goal is to create an encouraging space, whether online, on the radio or among our community. That’s why we want to encourage you this new year to consider getting counseling for any mental or emotional anxiety you may be feeling.

Many people resolve to take better care of their physical health in the new year, but we all know mental and emotional well-being are just as if not more important to care for. We want to extend our hand to help you find the Christian-based counseling you need, depending on the battles you are fighting.
