Hancock Health Connection Center
The Hancock Health Connection Center helps people with community resources to meet social needs and prevention/intervention services related to behavioral health needs. We serve Hancock County residents, patients and Hancock Health associates.
About This Location
The Hancock Health Connection Center is a confidential and comprehensive approach to making health possible for Hancock County residents, patients and Hancock Health associates. We are a hub for community resources to meet social needs and prevention and intervention services related to behavioral health needs.
A team of support navigators and System of Care outreach programs offer many services including QPR suicide prevention training, ACE Interface training, treatment for tobacco cessation, peer recovery services, CRAFT support groups, and more. Because of our strong System of Care, we can connect you and your family with local providers whose services encompass:
- Health care
- Social needs
- Mental health
- Substance misuse treatment
- Faith communities
- Child welfare
- Early Childhood
- Justice system
- Community coalitions
- Senior services
- Local government
- Youth and families
- Other social services
Our support navigators remove barriers to care and connect you with the services you need to support your body, mind, and spirit.
Mental illness can affect anyone. Just because we can’t always see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. The Hancock Health Connection Center team is here to help you connect with local mental health resources.
Our health is heavily affected by the way we care for our bodies—our dietary and exercise habits, coping mechanisms, and use of drugs or alcohol. We have a wealth of social and physical wellness resources available: Hancock Wellness Centers have state-of-the-art gym equipment, and we offer many classes and support groups.
Spiritual wellness can be an important part of daily life. Finding a local faith community can be of great benefit, both in times of health and times of need.
Support for Our Community
Mental Health & Substance Misuse
Hancock Health Behavioral Services can help adults affected by substance use disorder and co-occurring mental illnesses.
Our team provides a nonjudgmental and welcoming space, meeting you where you are and providing compassionate substance use disorder treatment. Services include:
- Individual and group therapy
- Case management to overcome obstacles and eliminate barriers to your recovery
- Medication-assisted treatment for opioid and alcohol use
- Medication management for psychiatric disorders
Patients can be referred via a Hancock Health physician, a support navigator at the Hancock Health Connection Center, or any of our local community partners. If you or someone you know could benefit from our substance use disorder treatment and co-occurring mental illnesses program, please reach out to the Hancock Counseling and Psychiatric Services today by calling (317) 468-6200.
Justice Navigator Program
The Healthy Community Response Collaborative (HCRC) creates pathways of collaborative care for individuals who are engaged at various intercepts of the justice system.
The Hancock Health Connection Center has justice focused support navigators who work with individuals exiting or involved with various points of the justice system.
Peer Recovery Services
Peer support specialists are people who have been successful in the recovery process who help others experiencing similar situations. Through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment, peer support Specialists help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Peer support services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process.
We routinely host classes and support groups to support prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery for our community members. Recurring classes offered at the Hancock Health Connection Center include:
Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) — A rolling workshop-style support group for families impacted by addiction. The group is free and takes place over the course of 12 weeks.
Question, Persuade, and Refer Suicide Prevention Training (QPR) — Trains individuals to recognize signs of self-harm and suicidal ideation in loved ones. Our team is trained through the QPR Institute. See available classes.
Rise Above It — An annual event that offers space for adults and kids to talk about emotional health, wellness, self-care and connect with resources. The FREE event includes vendors, snacks and several self-care stations.
Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) — Helps minimize the potentially harmful stress-related symptoms associated with traumatic incidents that occur while on the job, including promoting a healthy response and accelerating the healing process for individuals. Contact the Hancock Health Connection Center to request a debriefing for your organization.
