Solutions from the Frontlines:
A community behavioral health conversation
On May 22, GSNC hosted its first community engagement event Solutions From the Frontlines: A community behavioral health conversation.The aim was to put the people who use the mental health and treatment systems in New Hampshire in the same room with journalists and policy and law makers. The goal was for this conversation to be an opportunity for people who don’t usually get to have a say, to be heard by the people with the power to effect change, even if it’s small, in their lives.
The night included stories from people who faced the challenges mental illness and substance use disorders and their journey to find solutions.
The event also featured a panel of practitioners and officials on the frontlines of these dual crises.
