A county-wide initiative funded through The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health. Morris County was chosen to receive this three-year, $410,000 grant to build on a community collaborative to assess, plan and implement strategies to become a healthier community that supports resilience, mental health and well-being.
The goal of this initiative is to "address a lack of understanding of how communities support resilience and mental health, the significant inequities that exist in Texas, the community conditions that contribute to mental health disparities, and how people come together to create and implement community-driven solutions. We seek to gain an improved understanding of the environments where community members live, learn, work, play, and pray, resulting in improved resilience, mental health, and well-being.
MCC is focused on listening to all citizens to make their voice be heard. We are striving to bring citizens together to find common goals that will improve the lives of our residents.
Create resources and provide education that will improve the overall well-being in our communities.
