We’re glad you’re a part of the OBC community!
This is a safe space to discuss many topics and ideas that are important to you that affect mental wellbeing in our communities. We want everyone in our community to feel that their voice is heard. We encourage your feedback and aim to respond to your comments as soon as possible. While we do moderate this community, we aim to listen and reflect on topics that support community connections, optimism resilience, and engagement.
One Big Connection is supported by the 5HF wellness coalitions with content supplied by many community partners. Our goal is to support an interactive platform where experts, service providers, and community residents can access data and information to make it easier to find assistance when you need it.
At the core of this site is a commitment to sharing resources, tools, education, and expertise that connects our community members.
We love getting feedback and invite you to join this initiative to prevent mental health challenges and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.
