Welcome to Duxbury FACTS

The Duxbury FACTS coalition is made up of adult and teen volunteers providing a multi-pronged approach to address issues impacting youth health and wellness ranging from drug and alcohol prevention and treatment to suicide prevention and mental health promotion.

We are a community resource for mental health and alcohol and substance misuse. Our team works closely with the Duxbury Police Department Crisis Intervention Team, the Duxbury Public Schools, Duxbury Student Union and The Parent Connection to develop effective programs that fulfill our mission.

2021 Roadmap to Mental Health in MA

NAMI Plymouth Area, The MA Dept. of Mental Health, and the Plymouth DMH Site Advisory Board teamed to compile the 2021 “Roadmap Through the Mental Health System” as a resource, written from the perspective of peers and family members, and designed for use individuals and families dealing with the complexities and challenges of navigating the Mental Health system.

“Everyone involved in developing the Roadmap has been touched in a profound way by the onset and presence of mental illness. We have all experienced setbacks, and, perhaps because of them, we have grown and become more resilient advocates for ourselves or for our loved ones. Whether working together to compile this resource, or picking our way through common pitfalls that can endanger mental health, we have found strength, support and efficacy in sharing our stories and our experiences.

Early on, navigating the mental health system can be quite complicated and confusing for you and your family. Keep at it! Ask questions! Join a support group! Advocate for yourself or for your loved one! Recovery from a mental health condition is a highly individualized process involving support, education about mental health conditions, cooperation from the mental health system, treatment, case management, client rights, employment, self-help and wellness. We have included topics we found most essential in our own families’ journeys.”
