CHNA 17 Releases New Video Titled "The Disruptors: Mental Health Starts with Us"


Over the past year, CHNA 17 has been filming interviews to capture three innovative mental health efforts that we have funded. The video is now available and is titled The Disruptors: Mental Health Starts with Us. The projects included are Sister to Sister; Community Conversations; The Welcome Project's Volunteer Mental Health Advocate's Program; and Mental Health First Aid. These projects are all examples of "out of the box" thinking when it comes to mental health access... Companion documents for each program are located on the "Impact" page of our website for those who want to learn more.
