The Confess Project Receives Grant to Combat Opioid and Stimulant Crisis

The Confess Project of America (TCPA) is thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a significant grant from the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services. This grant, part of the State Opioid Response Grant: Health Equity Advancement Project (HEAP), empowers us to tackle the opioid and stimulant crisis head-on, expanding our reach and providing crucial, culturally responsive mental health support to those affected by addiction.

This grant will allow us to enhance our Community Mental Health Advocacy (CMHA) training and other community programs, which are specifically designed to support underserved and historically marginalized community members. Our programs provide essential resources about substance use disorder (SUD), opioid use disorder (OUD), and mental health, especially in situations where access to therapists is limited.

We understand that SUD/OUD is intrinsically linked to mental health issues, and that individuals struggling with mental health often turn to substance use as a form of self-medication. This includes the use of opioids, alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs. Our training programs aim to reduce the risk factors associated with SUD and address overlapping mental health issues. By overcoming stigma and breaking down barriers to seeking care, we help community members navigate these challenges more effectively, ultimately reducing the potential for negative interactions with law enforcement, incarceration, and unintentional overdose deaths.

We are deeply grateful for this opportunity to expand our mission and provide more training, resources, and hope to those who need it most. This grant not only supports our ongoing efforts but also inspires us to reach even further into our communities.
