“Advancing Health Across Four Counties: Lifting the Stigma of Mental Health”

For more than 10 years, area Health Departments have assessed local community health needs together by serving area residents, health professionals and community leaders. Now those counties are working together to address mental health stigma and lift up the connections to resources by partnering to design a new approach with area residents designing the process from the inside out. Learn about the challenges and wins of what it takes to listen first, slow down and go together to maximize the work.
