Connect Washoe County

Are you a community partner who wants to get involved or have questions about Connect Washoe County?

In response to community mental health needs, The Children’s Cabinet has partnered with Renown Health, Washoe County School District, and the Nevada Office of Suicide Prevention to achieve 5 broadly defined strategic activities to strengthen networks of care for teens and adolescents and their families.  

  • Combat deaths by suicide through the expansion of prevention, treatment, and family-centered support services
  • Develop a multi-tiered communication strategy, centering around developing non-traditional partnerships and joint messaging with an emphasis on eliminating the stigma of mental health
  • Advance linkages of community support services, government, and health practitioners
  • Strengthen, expand, and support interventions and programs within specific environments by building creative and non-traditional care avenues
  • Improve and support data collection, analysis, and dissemination efforts for behavioral health needs
