Beau has done it again; Helping Hands is a wonderful add-on exploring and creating awareness for mental health disorders from addiction to ADHD, Depression and more.  In a time where people are mostly concerned about where they are going to get their fix of binge watching tv series and movies; it is wonderful to see someone bring awareness to the table.  Whether you want to learn more about Addiction or Autism Helping Hands is here for you.  Beau brilliantly also shared phone numbers if you find yourself needing more assistance or to talk to someone.  I would like to take a moment to applaud Beau for this great add-on; it is truly remarkable to see a developer take the time to bring these areas to the forefront.
