A resource aimed to provide faster help to people struggling with mental health or substance misuse is now available in New Hampshire.
On Jan. 1, the state launched the “Rapid Response Access Point.”
The National Alliance on Mental Illness chapter for New Hampshire, commonly known as NAMI NH, said the addition is a big step in changing the response to people in a mental health crisis.
“They will be connected to a person with clinical training who will do an assessment on the phone and determine whether a further assessment is needed like the mobile crisis teams or whether they can be set-up with an appointment,” explained Ken Norton, Executive Director of NAMI NH.
