Riverside Community Care and BVT to Host Mental Health Regional Meeting

As the need for mental health resources grows, the nation continues to face a shortage of organizations and professionals equipped to help. The Blackstone Valley area is not immune to the problem as many agencies struggle to place patients with care providers due to the overwhelming demand.

Riverside Community Care and Blackstone Valley Tech will host a regional meeting on Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the school’s Three Seasons Restaurant to discuss the gaps in mental healthcare and substance use services for children and adolescents in the Blackstone Valley area.

Community members are invited to attend the event, which will include discussion of Riverside Community Care’s plans to address these challenges. Attendees will be asked to share their feedback and ideas with the organization.
