Getting Involved in Local Health and Wellness Initiatives in Orange County, CA

At Be Well OC, we are devoted to preventing the emergence of serious mental health conditions and emotional or behavioral disorders in people who are at risk. We are laying the foundation for a better system of mental health services that meet the needs of the entire Orange County community. Through our key care initiatives, Be Well OC is addressing critical mental health and substance use issues in our area. In collaboration with AdvanceOC, the OC Equity Map is a data platform that highlights social and health disparities in Orange County neighborhoods across multiple dimensions.

Our events are open to all ages living in Orange County, with some specifically designed to reach underserved and underprivileged communities. We strive to make Orange County a safe, healthy, and satisfying place to live, work, and play for today's generation and those to come by providing excellent and cost-effective regional public services. Orange County is renowned for its good health and wealth, but there is still a large gap between household income and the cost of living that affects the wellbeing of those living in economically disadvantaged areas. We are committed to bridging this gap and creating a healthier Orange County. At Be Well OC, we are passionate about helping our community members achieve their best physical, mental, and emotional health. We are actively working to reduce disparities in access to quality healthcare services by providing resources to those who need them most.

Our initiatives include providing free mental health screenings, hosting educational events on mental health topics, and offering support groups for individuals struggling with mental health issues. We also partner with local organizations to provide resources such as food banks, housing assistance, job training programs, and other social services. Our goal is to ensure that everyone in Orange County has access to the resources they need to lead healthy lives. We invite you to join us in our mission of creating a healthier Orange County. Whether you are an individual looking for ways to get involved or an organization looking for ways to collaborate with us, we welcome your participation. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those living in our community.
