Whether you’re aware of it or not, chances are you know someone who has been personally affected by a mental health disorder. However only a small percentage of these individuals receive the mental health services they need. “This needs to change and that is why Emergence Health Network has launched the Mental Health and You mobile application,” said Kristi Daugherty, CEO Emergence Health Network. “El Paso residents can enter their zip code and within seconds they will have access to mental health community resources and if someone they know is going through a mental health crisis they can get help from trained mental health care professional by a touch of a single button. It’s technology at its best and it could really make a difference in our community, maybe even save lives.”
The purpose of the app is to help residents identify the signs of mental illness and direct them to the resources needed to help a friend or loved one who may be in crisis.
