Waltham/Watertown Speaks is a public health strategy designed to share information about mental health and racial equity in Waltham/Watertown 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 January 10th, from 10:00am-1:00pm at the Watertown Police Department (552 Main Street, Watertown, MA 02472), CHNA 17, with support from Wayside Youth and Family Services 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.
