"Making dreams come true when you support local small businesses.
Another reason why you should support local businesses is that they are built by ordinary people, who are often our friends, family, neighbors, or acquaintances. Small business owners are not a board or stockholders that have long lost touch with reality and have no idea what your needs are.
Small business owners put everything they have in life at stake to make their dreams come true. And if we take a deeper look, they often have a couple of mouths to feed at home, a mortgage to pay, old shoes to replace, a roof to fix, etc.
By helping them keep their dream alive you’re directly bringing happiness into their lives. And what’s more rewarding than making someone happy?" (Enterprise League) #shoplocal #makingdreamscometrue #chelseami #chelseamich #chelseamichigan

Chelsea Hospital is working with Mood Lifters to offer mental health program for young adults.  Starting on June 2, young adults living in communities in Chelsea Hospital’s service area will have the opportunity to participate in a mental wellness program, entirely online, at a minimal cost to themselves through Chelsea Hospital as part of its response to increasing mental health needs in Michigan communities and concerns related to access to effective, accessible, timely care. 
The isolation and upheaval caused by the pandemic has hit young people especially hard.
The Mood Lifters program works differently than a therapy or support group. Each week, a trained peer-leader presents the latest science related to a specific topic involving behavior, thoughts, emotions, physical health, and social connection. After learning about and discussing the topic, group members will incorporate the strategies into their day-to-day life.  Mood Lifters members often refer to the program as a class and say that working with peer leaders in their group is a favorite aspect finding their group to be “a supportive place to learn new skills to help cope with the stress that life brings.” In the words of a college student who completed the Mood Lifters program “I learned good, preventative measures and I’m more equipped to handle what comes.”
 The full 15-week program of Mood Lifters for young adults is being offered online for only $25 to residents of Chelsea, Dexter, Grass Lake, Manchester & Stockbridge.  Interested young adults can sign up at https://moodlifters.corsizio.com/c/626eef3d135b3197d3ac696a or reach out via email to info@mood-lifters.com for more information. #mentalhealth #chelseahospital #chelseami #chelseamich #chelseamichigan

@robinhillsfarm Fun Farm Facts 🧑🏼‍🌾

There's a lot to know about their 129-acre farm but here's a glimpse:

• The name "Robin Hills Farm" was inspired when the owners of the property drove up the hill and witnessed robins bursting through a thicket of autumn olive as their car passed

• They exist to nurture their community and the land they live on

• They broke ground in 2014 and the Greenhouse was the first structure to be built, followed by the Garden Barn and Pasture Barn

• They have 3 miles of walking trails open to the public during business hours Thursday-Saturday

• 2015 was their first year raising livestock, and today Hay Creek Heritage Farms seasonally pastures their herds of Shetland sheep at Robin Hills Farm
