Mental health and substance use is an issue that affects all our communities and increasingly, resources to support people affected by mental illness and substance abuse may be challenging to find. Communities need a place to turn for support 24/7, but often we don’t know how to respond or be helpful.
Below, we’ve listed a number of resources that we are aware of to help support the capacity of our Grant County communities to be present for and responsive to the needs of people who are in recovery from mental illness and their families. There is hope!
