Red Sox Foundation awards Grace Cottage

TOWNSHEND - Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital has been awarded second place in the Red Sox IMPACT awards competition. The IMPACT awards, presented by the Red Sox Foundation and the Ruderman Family Foundation, support organizations raising awareness and improving outcomes surrounding mental health.
Grace Cottage will use its $3,000 IMPACT award to expand the safety net of mental health services that it provides in its primary care clinic, suboxone clinic, and emergency department.
Access to mental health care can be a big hurdle for patients. Grace Cottageā€™s mental health providers help with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, social isolation, and stress. The primary care clinic includes a suboxone clinic, which helps patients from a wide geographic area, combining behavioral therapy and medication to treat opioid addiction. Grace Cottage is also treating an increasing number of mental health patients in its emergency department.
The IMPACT awards give Red Sox fans the opportunity to nominate their favorite nonprofits to receive support and funding. The awards provide the winning nonprofits with either a first-place $10,000 grant, second-place $3,000 grant or a third-place $2,000 grant. Eligible organizations with the most online votes from fans are the designated winners, with three nonprofit winners selected from each New England state.
