The Steering Committee has met over the summer and are excited to share updates on the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), grant report updates and to learn what everyone else has been up to over the summer! In addition to our normal networking, new this year we will be starting each meeting with a "moment of request" where members can reach out to the group for any help or resources they may need!

Call2Talk is a confidential mental health and emotional support call line that assists individuals and families through stressful times in their lives, helping the despondent and those who may be suicidal.When calling Call2Talk, those who are struggling with mental health concerns have a safe place to call and will be encouraged to discuss their current experience. Some callers even talk openly about their thoughts of suicide and are in search of options.  By sharing their personal stories of tragedy, recovery, despair and grief, callers feel relief, comfort and hope.

 

MASS 2-1-1 is a statewide collaboration of local United Ways that recognize the need for people to access accurate information in non-emergency situations. Mass 2-1-1 is the official hotline in Massachusetts for Children Requiring Assistance (CRA) and the Runaway Assistance Program (RAP) through a contract with the Executive Office of Health & Human Services (EOHHS); and is also the official hotline for Childcare Resources in the Commonwealth under contract with the office of Early Education & Care (EEC); and is the official hotline for Emergencies and Disaster Response under contract with the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).
