Behavioral Health Support

To address behavioral health in our community, the Community Health department is partnering with the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) to deliver information on mental health conditions and resources available within our community. To curb deaths from opioid overdose, we are joining efforts with the Baltimore City Health Department in the quest to train as many people as possible to administer naloxone, a life-saving medication that rapidly reverses opioid overdose. Here is a listing of available classes. To register, call 855-218-2435, unless otherwise noted.

Drug Overdose Response Education and Training

Community members are encouraged to attend public trainings to learn how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. These trainings are designed for anyone who thinks they may be near someone experiencing an overdose. Those who complete the training will learn how to administer naloxone, a life saving medication that rapidly reverses an opioid-related overdose.
