Noblesville Wellbeing

Noblesville Wellbeing Coalition

In May 2021, the City of Noblesville in partnership with Noblesville Schools officially launched the Noblesville Wellbeing Coalition. The group is focused on the enhancement of wellness across the spectrum of health including mind, body, and emotional wellness by improving community-wide resources and processes. The Noblesville Wellbeing Coalition, chaired by Mayor Chris Jensen and Noblesville School’s Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer, has been convening on a regular basis since early March.

“May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we knew it was a great opportunity to announce that we have been working diligently with our community partners toward a healthier city and we are ready to officially launch our Noblesville Wellbeing Coalition,” Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen said.  “We understand this past year has been a struggle for many people and the focus on wellbeing is more important now than ever before. With the help of our community partners, we are collecting actionable data to allow for us to create lasting changes in the realm of wellness.”

A community-wide survey will be launched in July to capture Noblesville-specific data about the state of wellbeing in the city. The survey will serve as a baseline to measure efforts and identify key strengths and weaknesses that currently exist in the community in relation to overall wellness.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Noblesville Wellbeing Coalition to make a measurable difference in our community and provide key resources to people in need,” Noblesville Schools Superintendent Dr. Beth Niedermeyer said. “This collaboration is a huge effort and we don’t take this task lightly. We understand the need we have in the community to provide a full spectrum of wellness resources and make them accessible across the board, from our students, to staff, to families. We have the right team in place to gather the data we need and work together toward a happier, healthier Noblesville.”

NobleAct

The City of Noblesville has joined forces with the Noblesville Police and Fire Departments to create NobleAct, a mental health crisis and substance abuse response program. This program utilizes mental health police officers, community paramedics, and mental health clinicians to provide linkage to community services and divert those in crisis away from the criminal justice system. NobleAct provides mental health and addiction-based services to those in crisis in three primary ways:

ACTIVE CRISIS RESPONSE

  • De-escalate the scene unitizing the expertise of the mental health officer, community paramedic, and mental health clinician.
  • The team will assess the patient’s needs and provide direct linkage to the most appropriate community based services.
  • Direct clients away from the criminal justice system and unnecessary hospitalizations.

 CONDUCT FOLLOW-UP SERVICES

  • Follow-up on individuals transported to a hospital within 72 hours.
  • Follow-up on individuals referred to unit.
  • Provide case management services to assist those in their path to recovery.

CONDUCT OUTREACH INITIATIVES

  • The team will conduct community focused outreaches.
  • Conduct community education trainings.
  • Conduct community awareness events.

The Noblesville Fire Department has three Community Resource Paramedics (CRPs) as part of NobleAct. The CRPs will be used as a resource in the city’s battle against the COVID-19 virus. They will continue to operate on 24 hours shifts at Station 71 and will utilize a quick response vehicle to respond as needed. Noblesville’s CRPs’ compassion, integrity, and knowledge will help make stressful calls easier for both patients and their families.
