Today's program features Jacob Stuivenga of Plymouth Healing Communities (PHC), a non-profit organization that provides companionship, affordable housing, and advocacy for individuals who have experienced mental illness and homelessness. PHC's focused and timely intervention reduces the use of high-cost services such as hospital emergency rooms, detoxification services, shelters, and jails. The organization strives to destigmatize mental illness and create communities that are less fearful and more complete. Companions are deeply affected by their connections with and to the residents and each other, inspiring them to become lifelong mental health advocates.
We'll also hear from Sanjay, a PHC volunteer, and Beth, a resident of the Healing House. We'll discuss Plymouth Healing Communities' Global Giving Project, which provides an opportunity for you to get involved.
