Hampshire HOPE

Hampshire HOPE, a local coalition addressing opioid overdose and high risk substance use, is looking for people to participate in their Data to Action Workgroup.

Hampshire HOPE is a broad, inclusive coalition of people from all walks of life in Hampshire County: public health professionals, medical and behavioral health providers, police officers, prosecutors, people in recovery, people who use drugs, harm reduction specialists, advocates, allies and family members, elected officials, corrections workers, municipal leaders.

We take a big tent approach to the substance misuse epidemic in our country, inviting a diversity of perspectives in order to change underlying conditions that led to an overdose death crisis in our region.

These key tenets guide our work: dismantle stigma, prevent overdose, promote harm reduction, humanize people who use drugs or are addicted, support recovery, reduce addiction. We believe each of these goals work together on our overarching mission of saving lives. 

What the Data to Action Workgroup aims to accomplish:

  1. Take a deep dive to understand the data, including the meaning behind it, the stories it tells, and determining what's missing.
  2. Consider the ethics around data collection and how data is used, including discussing the potential unintended consequences of our actions.
  3. Recruit members with varied experiences to best shape our conversations.
  4. Inform the policy and practice decisions made by all sectors of our community as it relates to substance use disorder and opioid overdose.
