“Beyond The Stigma” is a year-long series sponsored by the New Hampshire Solutions Journalism Lab at the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications and funded by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, the New Hampshire chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and private individuals.
Issues explored during October included:
After New Hampshire announced a “hub-and-spoke” system of care for people with opioid addictions, the series explored lessons that could be learned from neighboring Vermont, which has successfully employed the “hub-and-spoke” system for five years.
The series put a spotlight on the Raymond Coalition for Youth’s 6th annual Prevention Summit, where teens urged more resources for prevention efforts; and reported on how Manchester’s Adverse Childhood Experiences Response Team would use $800,000 in federal grant dollars to help children who have been exposed to trauma; and more.
