MASH is here to listen to the needs identified by the community. Community engagement is key.
You can't fix what you don't address. MASH is here to help support the community's needs.
Formulating plans and logical courses of action are an integral part of the support MASH provides.
Once an issue has been identified and clarified and is definitely something you and/or your neighbors agree needs to be tackled, how do you go about addressing it? There are several ways to do that:
First, fill out the attached Community Assessment and Personal Asset forms and send them to MASH.
Second, the MASH Coordinator will contact you within two days to discuss your issue. If there’s a committee already working on the problem, she will direct you to that committee.
If there is no committee working on your particular problem and you are interested in chairing a committee to address it, we will help you start one. If you are not interested in chairing the committee, we will take your contact information and someone who can assist with dealing with your particular issue will be in touch with you.
Third, work with MASH, either as a committee chair who reaches out to others who share your concern, or as the member of a committee that shares your concern. You will never be asked to give more time than you have, nor will you be asked to do anything that you don’t want to do. (This is the value of the Personal Asset Form since it tells us exactly what you like to do as a volunteer and how much time you have to give.)
Hallucinogens (acid, angel dust, magic mushrooms)
Everyone reacts differently to hallucinogens. There is no way to know if the person using will have a "bad trip."
Panic, confusion, anxiety, paranoia, and loss of control are symptons of a "bad trip."
