    Mental wellbeing has a tremendous impact on the lives of individuals, families, and communities. Now is an opportune time for our nation to implement a comprehensive approach to mental health and wellbeing that incorporates community prevention as a complement to clinical care and long term recovery supports. Communities can forge a path forward by focusing on specific community conditions like housing, social networks, and trust, while intentionally embedding healing values like safety and trust. This approach produces multiple benefits, including: promotion of resilience and healing; reduction of stigma and trauma; strengthening of healthy social norms; and reduction of the severity of mental health problems, suffering, and associated costs.

    PART 2

    This is Part 2 of the Web Forum series on community mental health and wellbeing. Our presenters will provide an overview of the Making Connections for Mental Wellbeing initiative and highlight community driven efforts to improve mental health and wellbeing.

     

    This Web Forum is recommended for public health professionals, healthcare providers, behavioral health providers, community based organizations, faith-based organizations, and philanthropy/funders. Registration is free, thanks to support from the Prevention Institute and Blue Shield of California Foundation. Closed captioning will be available for all attendees.

    To learn about and register for the PART 1 Web Forum on January 25, please visit Back to Our Roots: Exploring the History of Community Mental Health and Identifying Strategies to Advance Population Wide Mental Health and Wellbeing.

    CARE: A Documentary Film

     90% of Americans (including many of us in Northern New England) want to age at home. Many of us will need the help of paid care workers because our families alone can’t provide all the support we need.  Told through the stories of both care workers and their clients, CARE illuminates the daily realities of many care workers, shows the powerful impact they have on the lives of the people they serve and exposes cracks in a system that is poorly serving both. 

    New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont have a shared geography and a shared future.  As our unemployment rates reach historic lows and our older population reaches new highs, there’s never been a more important time to engage in conversation about supporting and growing this critical segment of our workforce.
