In need of emergency crisis intervention? Call/text/chat 988.

Resource & Crisis Hub: 1-800-231-1127

Your unique perspective could help inspire another person.

If Common Ground has helped you or a loved one, you know the challenges of moving from crisis to hope, and as a result, you’ve likely learned to appreciate the power of reaching out, the impact of support networks, and the importance of being shown empathy.

Should you feel inspired to share your story, exchange strategies for coping or listen to others’ experiences, we invite you to join our Citizens Advisory Council – a group of people who have benefited from services at Common Ground and are interested in enriching them.

Join our Citizens Advisory Council.
