Building Healthy Communities

The goal of this program is to develop community-based approaches to mental health crisis management.  This program officially falls under Brighter Futures (read more), but warrants its own section given the importance of building healthy communities.

To this end, NNADAP workers, mental health workers and brighter futures workers will:

Develop and provide the necessary tools to deal with mental health and addictions issues.

Network with internal and external services to promote and improve the delivery of mental health and wellness issues.

Provide assessment and referrals to community member and caregivers.

Provide short-term counseling in crisis situations and out-patient after-care counseling.

Provide prevention and intervention activities to community members of all ages.

Provide educational information to community members through various community functions.
