One Big Connection is a project sponsored by the One Big Thing initiative and focuses on improving mental health awareness and prevention in the 5 Healthy Towns. The site launched on May 26, 2021, and has since added more than 21 community resources, 9 blog posts, 8 Action teams. New resources are added weekly. We invite all agencies and community organizations who serve residents of the 5 Healthy Towns to explore the site and contact us with questions.

The site includes:

  • Action Teams are places to come together, post information and solve local challenges.
  • Facts and Figures will house current local and regional statistics and peer-reviewed articles to keep us informed. The information can also be used by area non-profits in grant applications or strategic planning.
  • A Resource Directory will allow local non-profit service providers to post their information on a variety of topics addressing vital conditions like mental health and outreach services, reliable transportation, health and safety services, and social supports. If you are a local provider or organization who wishes to be added to our directory, go to https://www.onebigconnection.org/obc-local-resources/ for instructions on how to register.
  • Events will be a place where community organizations can promote upcoming events open to the community.
  • Community Pulse will feature articles, commentary by local experts, and publications of interest.
  • Polls and Surveys is an opt-in text messaging service that will provide occasional updates about events and opportunities in the 5HF service area. Participants will receive brief, one-question surveys to monitor our community points of view.
