When you, your child, or someone you love needs help with a mental health or substance use condition, where do you turn? Where do you look for help in Newport County? When you are ready, finding the right type of care should be the first step toward recovery, not a barrier to getting help. No Wrong Door was founded by Strategic Prevention Partnerships in collaboration with behavioral health and community organizations in Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth, Little Compton, Tiverton and Jamestown to answer your questions. By utilizing an inter-agency network of professionals, licensed social workers, and substance use specialists, our goal is to connect people with the specific treatment that is best suited to their recovery.

Our Mission

To establish a coordinated, interagency behavioral health system of care that delivers timely, high quality, cost-effective, evidence based mental health and substance use care to individuals and families living in Newport County. By approaching behavioral health as a coordinated network of community-based services and supports, our purpose is to more fully meet the challenges of children, adults & families struggling with behavioral health needs due to disparities in health care access and delivery.

We do this by

– Listening to the needs of our community and those with lived experience.
– Identifying gaps in behavioral health services and access.
– Developing effective plans to close gaps and remove barriers to service.
– Addressing the stigma surrounding mental health and substance use treatment.
– Providing a focus on health inequities.

Newport County Prevention Coalition was awarded a Van Beuren Charitable Foundation grant of $125,000 in 2019 to launch NCPC’s No Wrong Door Initiative, a proposed local system of care for individuals and families with complex behavioral health needs. A Gruben Foundation grant was received in November 2019 to support the implementation of the project. No Wrong Door Initiative seeks to provide the infrastructure to identify those at risk, coordinate and monitor the services they are provided, and ensure the timely provision of appropriate, high-quality, cost-effective, evidence-based services that will have a meaningful impact on those served.
