(PLYMOUTH COUNTY, MASSACHUSETTS) Mental health is not widely discussed, making it difficult to know how to take care of it. Each year, One in five U.S. adults experience mental illness, and suicide is the second leading cause of death among people aged 10-14.

This demonstrates that mental health knows no age restriction, and highlights the importance of learning about the resources available in your community for when you need them most. Next week, a free-to-attend event will help those living in Plymouth County learn what resources are available to them.

What is a Community Behavioral Health Center?

Community Behavioral Health Centers (CBHCs) are considered a "one-stop shop" that provide a range of mental health and substance use treatment programs. Massachusetts has a statewide network of 29 CBHCs located in communities throughout the state.
