JACKSONVILLE, Florida – May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Action News Jax focuses on its impact on the city of Jacksonville.
We spoke with Healing Roots founder Katie Wiggins, who turned a tragedy of her own life into a mission to help others, creating Healing Roots.
The mission of the new nonprofit is to provide a safe space for families and people who have lost a loved one to homicide.
They help people navigate the pain of such a traumatic event and offer hope and healing by encouraging anyone to come as they are.
Healing Roots provides individual and group counseling and access for all to mental health services and resources.
