Jefferson County wants to be the healthiest rural county in Iowa and mental health is a key component of that plan. Let's Go Jeff Co is working closely with two new organizations to improve the mental health of all county residents; Fairfield / Jefferson County Mental Health Alliance and Fairfield Cares. We have jointly set up an online resource to share mental health resources.
Let'sGoJeffCo was formerly known as the Jefferson County Wellness Action Coaltion (JeffCoWac) and has been recently rebranded as "Let'sGoJeffCo" with the tagline - It's never too late to feel great!
