Taking a Macro View of Mental Health in Door County with Andrew Phillips
We often talk about mental health at the individual level, in terms of individual people’s struggles. It’s also important to look at mental health on a community level. Door County, like many smaller, tight-knit communities, can have difficulty in looking directly at challenges and publicly discussing them. That’s all the more true because so many residents’ livelihoods depend on the promotion of our community to visitors. But engaging directly in these difficult conversations is healthy for our community – it’s a form of community mental health. When we don’t do so, when we avoid tough issues or tiptoe around them, it can have negative effects on people dealing directly with those issues and their ability to work toward or maintain mental health.
Andrew Phillips is a longtime journalist and Door County native whose work has appeared in multiple Door County publications, as well as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee Business Journal and The (Cedar Rapids, IA) Gazette. He is an alumnus of Gibraltar High School and graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in philosophy and journalism from Marquette University.
