About This Location
The Hancock Health Connection Center is a free, confidential hub for mental health and recovery resources. Our welcoming 10-room center includes a larger meeting space that can accommodate up to 20 people in support group meetings, training sessions, or public classes.
Our System of Care is comprehensive, connecting you and your family with local providers whose services encompass:
- Health care
- Mental health
- Substance abuse disorder
- Faith communities
- Cognitive disabilities
- Child welfare
- Juvenile justice
- 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 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 Abuse
RISE Recovery and Wellness is designed for adults affected by substance use disorders and co-occurring mental illnesses. RISE stands for Resilience, Individualized care, Safe space, and Empowerment.
Our team provides a nonjudgmental and welcoming space, meeting you where you are and providing compassionate substance abuse 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
RISE 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 RISE program, please reach out to the Hancock Health Connection Center today by calling (317) 468-4231.
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.
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.
Rise Above It — An annual emotional health and wellness event to normalize conversations about mental health for adults and teens.
Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) — Helps minimize the potentially harmful stress-related symptoms associated with traumatic incidents, including promoting a healthy response and accelerating the healing process for individuals.
