Doodle Survey #1: Please choose the day(s) of the week that works best for your organization and the individuals you serve (you can choose multiple options)

Doodle Survey #2: Please choose the time(s) of a day that works best for your organization and the individuals you serve (you can choose multiple options)
The ACTION line is a centralized phone number answered by 2-1-1 staff trained to offer an array of supports and options to individuals in distress, including telephonic support; referrals and information about community resources and services; warm-transfer to the Mobile Crisis Team (MCT) of their area; and, when necessary, direct connection to 911.
Remove the Risk raises awareness of the serious dangers of keeping unused opioid pain medicines in the home and provides information about safe disposal of these medicines.

Use these free toolkit materials—public service announcements (PSAs), social media images and posts, fact sheets, and more—for talking with others about safe opioid disposal.

Dry January Can Be Amazing for Your Health, If Done the Right Way
Dry January seems pretty harmless—in fact, taking a one-month hiatus from drinking could actually do really great things for your well-being. You’ll get the most out of Dry January, however, if you use the month as a chance to reassess (and possibly adjust) your drinking habits and relationship with alcohol after the month is up—as opposed to a license to drink as much as you want the rest of the year. With that in mind, let’s talk about what Dry January might look like for you.
