Event description

Description

Community partners, stakeholders, and members of the community are invited to join us on Thursday, October 10th from 1:00 – 3:00 at the Christ Fellowship Church's Fellowship Hall, 850987 US Highway 17, Yulee, for the first Nassau County Care Connect Consortia Meeting, a planning meeting dedicated to fighting the opioid epidemic in Nassau County.

The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program-Planning Grant (RCORP) supports a planning partnership between the Health Planning Council of Northeast Florida (HPCNEF), the St. John’s River Rural Health Network, Starting Point Behavioral Health, and the Florida Department of Health Nassau. The partnership will seek solutions in the treatment for and prevention of substance use disorder, including opioid use disorder, in rural counties at the highest risk.

Partners will share the needs assessment and service gaps related to Nassau County. Nassau County Care Connect will seek additional community participation from stakeholders, residents, and volunteers interested in participating in this important community-wide effort in creating a strategic plan to address the opioid crisis in Nassau County.

Additionally, the Community Coalition Alliance (CCA) in collaboration with LSF Health Systems and the North Florida HIDTA will leverage this meeting opportunity to engage stakeholders in a discussion around needs and existing gaps for community-level prevention efforts to address substance misuse. Information will be shared across key data indicators, the results of the community feedback survey, and available strategies to identify community-level prevention priorities in addition to opioid misuse and abuse.

We are asking community partners, stakeholders, and members of the community to complete the online survey, as it will be instrumental in identifying current needs to support community efforts on combating substance misuse.
