Be Well Northborough events
June 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Northborough – The Be Well Northborough Working Group was formed with the goal of collaborating across town departments to offer new programming and raise awareness of existing resources available that will help our community recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and address issues such as social isolation, mental health, substance use, and overall wellness.
The Be Well Northborough Working Group includes department heads from Police, Fire, Recreation, Family and Youth Services, Northborough Senior Center/Council on Aging, Health, Library, and Schools, as well as Becca Meekins (Assistant Town Administrator and Diversity and Inclusion Committee staff liaison). On March 14, $100,000 in funding for the Be Well Northborough initiative was approved at the Board of Selectmen meeting.
Be Well Northborough is pleased to announce the following programs, which are designed to address stated mental health and wellness needs of people living and working in Northborough. All programs listed below are being presented free of charge. Please note that some programs require advance registration.
