Awareness of substance use and mental health disorders is on the rise, but there’s still work to be done. It’s important for community members to look out for each other by helping to spread the word about resources available to those who struggle. The more we talk about it, the more we fight the stigma of addiction and mental illness, and empower others to get the help they need.
How you can help:
Join a DE Community Response Team
Community Response Teams are made up of Delaware residents who volunteer to work together to support their communities in fighting addiction, drug overdoses, and overdose deaths.
- Provide education about overdose response and help to distribute Narcan — a lifesaving overdose-reversal medication.
- Teach skills that reduce the negative consequences of drug use.
- Share information to reduce the stigma of addiction.
