  • Staff Report 

Yates County Public Health and Community Services have teamed up with CredibleMind to offer a free online mental health platform for residents. The site provides around-the-clock access to over 10,000 confidential, science-based resources.

The platform covers more than 225 topics, offering apps, videos, podcasts, articles, and books. Residents can find resources tailored to their specific needs and preferences. Dr. Doug Sinclair, Yates County’s public health director, emphasized the importance of this tool, particularly in rural areas with limited mental health care providers.

“This platform allows residents to explore wellness topics, engage in self-help, and connect with local providers anonymously,” said George Roets, director of community services. Users can personalize their content and track their progress, with options for weekly email updates. For immediate crisis support, call or text the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline or dial 911 in emergencies.
