Join the MN Department of Health for a monthly Mental Well-Being and Resilience Learning Community:
STIR-Building Resilience and Community Capacity One Step at a Time
Tuesday, February 22, 2022
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
STIR (Stronger Together Inspiring Resilience) is a network in Sherburne County that is building community capacity through passion and a desire to share unique gifts and opportunities across sectors. STIR started out in 2019 as a community task force focused on increasing awareness about the impact of trauma and building community resilience. It has evolved into a county-wide network which includes community members, as well as leaders from the faith community, health care, education, substance use prevention, mental health and county systems, who are all invested in promoting well-being and resilience together. STIR aims to promote healing, inspire resilience, share social connections and celebrate the whole person through mind, body and spirit throughout Sherburne County. Learn how STIR efforts evolved and continue to grow, including providing training and outreach; development of a website and logo; community-wide well-being initiatives; social media campaigns; addressing systems gaps and changes. For example, STIR helped link the foster care system with the faith community to help activate members to become foster parents and address a growing crisis in the Sherburne County foster care system.
