Everymind’s Mental Health Resource Guide

Mental health is defined by the World Health Organization as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.  That state of being mentally healthy exists along a continuum and for some can vary widely day to day. 

Here in Montgomery County, EveryMind has developed this printable guide of local and national resources, hotlines, support groups and other resources that provide mental health support.  It is available on the Everymind website.

Issue Date: November 20, 2017

On any given day in Montgomery County, thousands of disconnected youth (ages 16-24 who are neither in school or working) can be found in need of opportunity and reconnection to education or employment. In many cases, these youth aren’t easily identifiable and therefore aren’t steered toward reengagement activities that could improve their long-term outcomes. This solicitation seeks to identify and select a qualified community-based organization with strong ties to the East County community (Briggs Chaney, White Oak, and Burtonsville) and its surrounding neighborhoods. Qualified applicants will be organizations either willing to hire or currently having on staff at least two individuals who have lived experience having been disconnected in Montgomery County that can serve as “peer outreach connectors”.
