Support Navigators

The Healthy365 Connection Center support navigators deliver acts of kindness one patient at a time. As caring community partners, they provide a non-judgmental confidential listening ear, as well as helpful local connections and resources to overcome life’s many challenges, including transitioning out of the criminal justice system, substance misuse, depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions affecting mood, thinking and behavior.

Our support navigators go far beyond simply handing people a list of available resources. They are focused on warm hand-offs to the right services and removing barriers.

Specifically, the Justice Navigation team works with Hancock County inmates as they prepare for life outside of jail and transition back into the community. For example, when someone exits jail, often they do not have insurance anymore, and they may need to be set up with a doctor or get their prescriptions set up.

Individuals often don’t know where to go or where to begin and have broken a lot of ties with family and friends. That’s why we want to get people on the right path, and the support navigator can help do that for them.

Substance misuse and mental health are typically the top two needs, but others include employment, parenting, a faith community to call home, GED, peer recovery coaching, transportation, housing, insurance, and health care.
