Heatlthy Harrison Coalition
Formed in 2013 specifically in response to the Harrison County 2011 Community Health Needs Assessment.
The purpose was to bring together Harrison County's organizations and groups – health, voluntary/civic, business, faith, education, government, human service, media, philanthropic – as well as interested individuals, to work collaboratively on the health needs of Harrison County residents with a focus on childhood obesity and child abuse and neglect.
The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment showed the need to keep up the coalition's work on obesity, child abuse and neglect and to get to work on two additional areas – mental health and substance abuse.
Meetings are the fourth Tuesday of each month and is open to all who are interested in improving the health and wellness of our families, friends and neighbors.
