Outreach and Education

The Outreach and Education Initiative connects with churches and faith-based organizations in Chester County to offer information and resources regarding mental illness and substance use disorders.  Some of the objectives are to:

  • identify the training and resource needs of each church and faith-based organization
  • develop trusting relationships with church/ministry leaders and congregants to foster dialogue about their needs
  • enhance/increase knowledge and information about available resources in Chester County to address their needs
  • offer workshops, forums and events throughout the County to support networking in each community
  • create opportunities to develop partnerships between churches/organizations and local mental health and substance abuse providers and community recovery support groups
  • promote spirituality as an important part of wholistic treatment and long-term recovery to the service providers and government systems
  • support Chester County’s Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) goals of early outreach, engagement and development of natural supports
