Mental Health Task Force
The Mental Health Task Force is a newly-developed task force group on the plateau. Currently a group of active volunteers are addressing the following initiatives:
1) Seeking ways to provide community awareness and education regarding mental health issues, especially as it pertains to their part of the community (schools, health care providers, police, churches, etc.).
2) Seeking and facilitating additional services that might be brought into the community to address mental health issues.
3) Researching and even requesting appropriate grants and funding sources.
The steps we are working on now are researching available education resources and finding out what organizations may be available to help in the plateau communities.
The long-term goal is to increase community awareness of mental health issues and find ways to provide more services to address mental health needs.
