Posted on Sunday, August 22, 2021 by Sarah Shaver

Sarah Shaver talks with Dr. Matt Samocki, steering team member of the Great Lakes Bay Region Mental Health Partnership. Dr. Samocki outlined the Partnership mission and described THRIVE (Transforming Health Regionally in a Vibrant Economy) – a dynamic collaboration between the Michigan Health Improvement Alliance (MiHIA) and the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance (GLBRA). Together they engage the community to dramatically improve the health and economic success of all its members. Barriers like shame can keep people from seeking help and the Partnership specifically works to educate the public using the I Matter anti-stigma campaign.
