Asheville, NC - In an era where mental health concerns are on the rise and professional resources can be difficult to access, a unique initiative is making waves in the field of mental health support. The project is called the 'Mental Health GPS'. Two members of the nonprofit, INclude - The Mental Health Initiative, were invited to share their insights and experiences on an Asheville radio show, shedding light on the transformative power of peer navigation. As part of their ongoing efforts to help individuals find solace and navigate the right services during moments of need, Judith Klein and Ben Carey are redefining the traditional approach to mental health support.
Introduction: In recent years, behavioral health (mental health and/or substance issue) has emerged as a significant concern, impacting individuals and communities nationwide.
