We are coming together as a COMMUNITY
This year, RCCMHC is partnering with the Suburban Ramsey Family Collaborative to hold several Virtual Resource Connection Events. So far, we've held three Virtual Fairs and one Resource Scavenger Hunt.
Virtual Resource Fairs
We are coming together via Zoom to share resources and services that are available right now (no wait times.) Families can choose to meet with individual agencies and/or resource navigators. After the fair, parents/caregivers will get a $20 giftcard stipend, a list of resources, and a chance to win lots of great Raffle Prizes!
Scroll through this list of agencies and resources from the November 17, 2020 Virtual Resource Fair.

Resource Scavenger Hunt(s)
RCCMHC hosted a virtual Resource Scavenger Hunt from Monday June 22 to Friday June 26 to help families and providers find resources, connect with resources, and share resources in a FUN way!! All participants were entered into a raffle to win gift cards and prizes!
More than 700 people engaged in resource searches on our website during the week of the Scavenger Hunt.
We hope to hold more virtual Scavenger Hunts this year. If your agency or school would like to partner with us to host a Scavenger Hunt for your youth or families, please contact Wendy@rccmhc.org

RCCMHC hosted our first resource fair in 2010. Since then, the fair has grown into a “bursting at the seams” community event! Today, our Family Wellbeing Fairs offer one-stop shopping access to local services and supports such as: child/adult mental health, school support, faith and cultural connections, basic needs and financial support, chemical health, nutrition and physical health, youth services and mentoring, case management, juvenile corrections, advocacy and legal support, job training/ vocational connections etc.
In addition to traditional services, several agencies offer healing practices and/or cultural adaptations of evidence-based practices. Some examples include: sensory-based therapies such as music or art therapies, yoga, mindfulness, self-regulation, and Eastern healing practices such as acupuncture.
