Only one week until Helix Diagnostics sponsors Easterseals Michigan in its efforts to bring relief to the mental health community! Set your clock to allow 3 minutes for you to take this free assessment! You deserve this! Last week, 78% of those screened were found to need care. Do it for yourself! You’re worth it!
The past year has been unlike anything any of us have experienced… So it is with good reason Easterseals Michigan is offering free, anonymous mental health screenings for May: “Mental Health Awareness Month”. The month of May has our attention, however Helix Diagnostics is proud to be making a donation for each 3 minute “check up from the neck up” test taken on Monday May 24th at www.EastersealsMichigan.com.
Mental Health Awareness Month begins on Saturday, May 1. Over the past year, anxiety and depression has increased greater than 6X higher in Americans per Boston College researchers (http://ow.ly/4ZOX50ECddn). Please join us at Helix Diagnostics as we all hold space for each other. Tune in for our Mental Health Monday updates.

For Lab Week we had scavenger hunts, worked puzzles, danced, sang, dressed in decade themes, wore wacky clothes with crazy socks and even threw pies in manager’s faces. (Thank you Waterford Coney Island on Hatchery for catering!) Through it all, we honor you and the true super heroes you are every day. We are grateful for you, Helix family!
All of us at Helix Diagnostics are wishing you and yours a safe and peaceful Easter.
Ionia and Kent counties are both underserved communities and Covid 19 hotspots having some of the higher positive Covid 19 rates in the state of Michigan.
