Crisis services are a critical piece of the mental health system. During Mental Health Month this May, the Minnesota Department of Human Services is highlighting services that get people in crisis the help they need, when they need it. One of 5 Minnesotans face mental illness each year, and one in 25 people live with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Fortunately, there are more treatments, services and community support available, and many people with mental illness can and do recover.
To the editor:
Marge Sagstetter was the featured speaker at the Pineridge Garden Club April 18 meeting held at Cottage Grove City Hall on the topic "Raising Monarch Butterflies Responsibly." Sagstetter has been raising monarch butterflies for over five years and discovered the passion by accident after two friends asked her to "babysit" their caterpillars. She overcame a childhood fear of butterflies and insects in the process. Raising monarch butterflies indoors increases the survival rate from 2-3 percent outdoors to 99 percent indoors.

Each year, 1.5 million children die from vaccine-preventable diseases. Government spending on foreign aid has proven to be extremely effective, however, in reducing these deaths through vaccine programs and initiatives. The Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Initiative, for example, has made great progress since 2000 when it began, saving more than 20.4 million lives from this incredibly contagious disease in total. Still though, every day there continue to be 246 child deaths from measles — deaths that we can prevent with a simple MMR vaccine.
