Promise Resource Network is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the approach to recovery from mental illness, substance use, and trauma, by focusing on wellness, not illness. Your donation will help us live our mission every day through individualized recovery support, education programs and advocacy, allowing us to change lives and change the way society approaches recovery.
Promise Resource Network’s 24/7 Peer-Run Warm-Line was restarted in March 2020 to combat isolation and loneliness during NC’s stay at home order. Since then, it has become a mainstay in Mecklenburg County’s COVID initiative, MeckHOPE, now supporting over 400 callers a month.
On December 21, 2020, the NC Health News released an article about the use of involuntary commitment in our state and PRN’s leadership is gathering and reporting on the data.
PRN is honored to have partnered with SAFE Coalition NC, Jarrod James and Rep. John Autry, to identify 17 recommendations for an alternative community response team to support people experiencing emotional distress, psychiatric disabilities, substance use, homelessness, and other wellness challenges through non-traumatizing alternatives that reduce and/or eliminate the use of of involuntary hospitalization, confinement, arrest, restraint, handcuffing, shackling and other uses of force when responding to people in our community that experience emotional distress.
