Wightman is a local and family-owned company, serving Arthur with internet and phone since 2015, and recently, Wightman has constructed Fibre to the Home, a powerful communications infrastructure in Arthur. We’re grateful to be a part of each community that we serve, and the #GetInTouchForHutch Organization is doing such great work in the community to raise awareness for Mental Health.
According to the #GetInTouchForHutch Organization suicide accounts for 24 percent of all deaths of youth, 15-24 year olds. Steven Hutchison took his life while at University in February of 2013, this was a shocking tragedy for Steven’s family and friends. The #GetInTouchForHutch Organization was established to start a conversation about mental health, break down the walls from the stigma and discrimination that many feel when struggling with mental illness. As stated by the organization “it’s going to take all of us together to make that happen.”
