Resilience Grows Here (RGH)
Resilience Grows Here (RGH) is a veteran’s mental health initiative centered in East Granby, CT, coordinated by the Farmington Valley Health District (FVHD). RGH is an innovative program that draws on community input to develop an effective, sustainable approach to support veterans and their families. Veterans are involved in the planning and project implementation with a committee of volunteers. As a partner on this project with the FVHD, the Institute for Community Research is assisting with organizing focus groups, collecting data, and developing a theory of change model and program goals and objectives with input and participation from a broad array of veteran and community stakeholders.
