New Behavioral and Mental Health Guide for Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union Counties Released

Spartanburg, S.C. – United Way of the Piedmont (UWP) announces the release of an updated guide to behavioral health services in Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union Counties.

This is a project of the United Way’s Behavioral Health Task Force (BHTF). The BHTF is a task force of agencies and community leaders who meet to determine the best practices and means of reaching and serving mental and behavioral health needs in our community.

Listing support and rehabilitation services and therapy options, as well as crisis numbers and links for 2-1-1 and other resources, the Behavioral Health Resource Guide is accessible online and available as a PDF.

Through our collective impact model, we share data with our partners while working to improve access to care for those living with mental health and addiction challenges. In addition to the Resource Guide, the BHTF also helped bring to fruition the Eubanks Peer-Support Living Room in the fall of 2018 – a safe space for those struggling with mental health and addiction issues to find peer-led support and guidance as they work to live with hope and healing.

Hannah Jarrett, VP of Community and Collective Impact at UWP remarks that, “It’s been several years since an updated version of the Behavioral Health Guide was made available to the public. We’re pleased to present this resource to our community and to have a part in shaping the future of behavioral health services in the Upstate.”
