Over 3,500 community members and organizations across our region were involved in creating the first-ever Metro Region Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) to address mental health. We want to thank our community members and organizations for participating!
COVID-19 arrived in the Metro and greatly impacted people’s time and ability to work on these community projects.

Each group meets monthly to receive updates and participants provide input on the strategy of the campaign. Meetings are led by The Wellbeing Partners. The work groups, which are open to new members, are:
