Our Story

Resilience Grows Here (RGH) is a mental health initiative of the Farmington Valley Health District,  that engages veterans, active service members, military families and members of the broader community in dialogue and programming to address the mental health needs of our military friends and neighbors. Our
mission is to create a community that fosters the health and resilience of veterans and military
families across their lifespan. We are committed to improving mental health and eliminating
the stigma of mental illness through education, access to resources and honest conversation.

Our mission is to create communities that foster the health and resilience of veterans across their lifespan.

We believe that veterans should come home to communities, not programs. Therefore, our efforts within the communities themselves, our presence with the 103rd Airlift Wing in East Granby and our interaction with a variety of veterans, active service members and their families, we are recognized as a reliable resource for educating communities about our service members, offering suicide awareness training, peer training, resiliency training and providing access to benefits and resources for our warriors and their families.

Using the Public Health approach ,when we think of a person’s lifespan and prevention, we want to think of upstream approaches. Working with children in schools and in communities to teach resilience and mental health literacy, we begin to change the conditions from where our future service men are raised and the environments into which they return home.

 

We recognize that we cannot change the way the military exists, operates, recruits or trains. But we are able to affect the awareness and health of communities and children. Our service men and women deserve to return home to healthy and well-informed communities that understand what has been sacrificed on their behalf and assume the responsibility of caring for these warriors.

Community Battle Book

Understanding Your Population

In order to help, you have to understand why the veterans, active service members, and families you’re hoping to serve feel the way they do. If you understand the specific challenges these populations face in your community, the root causes of their feelings and behaviors become clear. We began work in one town and slowly expanded to 10 towns within the local public health department catchment area; now have a presence and connections across the state. Once we understood the issues our population faced in our first town, it was easy to adapt and anticipate similar struggles and issues as our service area grew.
