Technology Connections: Supporting a Healthy Community from Head to Toe: Mental Health & Climate Health 2018-2019

This project is designed to support the implementation of Supporting a Healthy Community from Head to Toe community engagement programs by providing "toolkits" available to patrons on iPads. Supporting a Healthy Community from Head to Toe is a two-topic set of programs to promote healthy communities, share information about public health resources and the All of US Research Program. The initial programs would be part of a planned on-going series aimed at addressing the issues of mental health and health impacts of climate change in our communities. The iPads, two at Carpenter-Carse Library and two at Charlotte Library, would provide an ongoing, private way for patrons to access trusted mental health and health information, including many from NNLM, related to these topics. New iPad toolkits would be developed to complement other topics as the series continues.
