Heatlthy Harrison Coalition

Formed in 2013 specifically in response to the Harrison County 2011 Community Health Needs Assessment.

The purpose was to bring together Harrison County's organizations and groups – health, voluntary/civic, business, faith, education, government, human service, media, philanthropic – as well as interested individuals, to work collaboratively on the health needs of Harrison County residents with a focus on childhood obesity and child abuse and neglect.

The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment showed the need to keep up the coalition's work on obesity, child abuse and neglect and to get to work on two additional areas – mental health and substance abuse.

Recently the Healthy Harrison Coalition and the Behavioral Health Coalition merged. In order to have a smooth tranisition and clear objectives for a shared vision and to lay the foudnation for our collective scope of work the Coalitions are working to create a stratigic plan for the future. If you would like to be a part of these planning sessions, please feel free to reach out to us.


Regular scehduled meetings are the second Tuesday of each month at 11:30 a.m. at the lower level CHI Building and are open to all who are interested in improving the health and wellness of our families, friends and neighbors.

Save the Date - Race to Resilience

It should come as no surprise a study by ACEs 360 finds that communities connected through caring relationships have less crime, homelessness & substance abuse and increased school success, mental & physical health. Our goal is to educate & promote awareness of child abuse & adverse childhood effects while creating community connections. We know that one person, one program or one event won’t change everything, but it can be a little nudge in the right direction.

The Healthy Harrison Coalition along with Harrison County Home & Public Health hosts an annual event called Race to Resilience.

It’s about hope. It’s about courage. It’s about overcoming & becoming everything you have the potential of being. It’s about creating a positive environment for our children & our children’s children.
