Hopefest Raises Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Awareness
Fundraiser to support integrated care program at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth
PLYMOUTH, MA – The Jordan Hospital Club is proud to announce that it is supporting the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth (BID-Plymouth) Integrated Care Initiative to help address the dual challenges of behavioral health and substance abuse needs of individuals and families on the South Shore. Throughout the region, communities are struggling with a substance abuse epidemic that threatens the lives of individuals and weakens the fabric of families and communities.
The BID-Plymouth Integrated Care Initiative will bring together healthcare providers and local behavioral health programs in a coordinated model of care to better support those struggling with medical, behavioral health, and substance abuse needs.
As an independent, all volunteer, fundraising organization, the Jordan Hospital Club is helping BID-Plymouth shine a light on the issue and will host the Second Annual HOPEFEST on Saturday, September 26, at Alden Park restaurant in Plymouth to raise funds and awareness about the need for integrated behavioral and substance abuse care in the community.
“When a family member or friend is struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues it can be very stressful,” says Jordan Hospital Club President Pam Meyer. “Knowing there is help right in the community is so important. Through HOPEFEST, we are working to raise community awareness of the Integrated Care Initiative, so individuals and families can receive the care and support they need."
