Somerville Speaks is a public health strategy designed to share information about mental health and racial equity in Somerville that was collected last spring as part of an assessment conducted by the community coalition Community Health Network Area 17 (CHNA17). CHNA17’s goal was to better understand the successes and challenges that African Americans experience when accessing mental health services. The initiative was funded by Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge and McLean Hospital in Belmont.
On Wednesday November 15th from 1:00pm-4:00pm at the Welcome Project (530 Mystic Ave. #111, Somerville) in Somerville, CHNA 17, with support from the Emmanuel Gospel Center will share with service providers what was learned in these community interviews and lead facilitated group community discussions. Service providers will engage in dialogue about what was shared and plan next steps to improve mental health services. CHNA 17 will provide funding next year to support changes to improve access to services.
