NAMI Moultriethrough education, support, and advocacy, geared not only toward individuals living with a mental health diagnosis, but also for their family members and friends. Beginning with a local grassroots effort initiated in 2010, NAMI Moultrie achieved official affiliate status in 2013 and launched a movement to improve mental health resources and services in the community.
The movement has grown in momentum and support as additional community members and organizations have joined the effort, adding their expertise and passion to the effort. The public mental health clinic reopened and is transitioning soon to a spacious new facility conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Moultrie.
Colquitt County’s Accountability Court is making a marked difference in lives as individuals are now given the option of following a path of recovery in lieu of jail.
The Peer Support and Wellness Center has become a safe, welcoming environment for members of the community facing mental health and substance use challenges. Their busy daily schedule offers caring, skilled peer support, enjoyable activities, and secure, comforting respite at no cost to participants.
After careful planning, the Moultrie Police Department recently established a Co-Responder Team comprised of a mental health professional and a law enforcement officer. The purpose is to de-escalate encounters and, when appropriate, refer the individual to treatment in lieu of arrest.
Perhaps eclipsing all other accomplishments for this small town, Turning Point Hospital and Colquitt Regional Medical Center have established a Psychiatry Residency Program. The first residents just received their white coats, officially increasing the number of mental health professionals available to our citizens.
These few examples serve to illustrate the progress being made in this rural community.
There is much more to the story, but even more important, this story, our story, is far from over.
