Door County Emergency Support Coalition tackles mental health

Sherry Mutchler is a former counselor and the point person for a new mental health initiative from the Door County Emergency Support Coalition. Mutchler leads a team of volunteers who are fielding calls from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM for those struggling with isolation during the “Safer at Home” order. She says that the Mental and Emotional Support Hotline, known as MESH, is for all ages, but she expects Door County seniors to need the most help.

 


So far, 570 volunteers have given a combined 4,000-plus hours to the Door County Emergency Support Coalition. Mutchler says that knowing her neighbors and friends are being helped is a reward in itself, and that is helping drive her to get MESH off the ground.
