NWMHC Promotes Mental Health & Suicide Awareness at Nite to Unite!

NWMHC Mobile Crisis team sets up booth at “Nite to Unite” to Stomp out the Stigma on Mental Health and Promote Suicide Awareness.

Night to Unite (National Night Out) is a statewide event that builds and fosters community bonds between citizens, businesses, and public safety organizations. This annual celebration occurs on the first Tuesday in August and gathers neighborhoods and public safety personnel together for an evening to promote safe communities.

Night to Unite goals are to:

· Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.

· Generate support and participation in crime prevention and community policing programs.

· Strengthen neighborhood spirits and public safety-community partnerships.

· Let criminals know that you are committed to keeping your neighborhood safe.

Night to Unite has proven to be an effective, inexpensive, and enjoyable opportunity to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in pursuit of safer communities. Community benefits often extend beyond this single evening event as neighbors get to know each other and public safety agencies that serve them.
