Washtenaw United: Garrett’s Space - an innovative new option for mental health support for young adultsJulie and Scott Halpert know all too well what it means to lose a loved one to self-inflicted harm. Their son Garrett took his own life in 2017. Ever since, the Halperts have been working to provide support to others in hopes of preventing more grief. Now the plan is to have a brick-and-mortar facility on 76-acres of land in Superior Township to provide holistic and non-medical support and care services for young adults struggling with life. And, it's to be called Garrett's Space. The Halperts joined WEMU's David Fair to share their story.
A nonprofit aiming to build a residential center to help people struggling with mental health issues took a step forward to becoming a reality. WEMU’s Josh Hakala has an update.
