Remarkable care in Brunswick County starts with you

Twenty years ago, Carolyn Felton retired as a special education teacher and moved with her family to Brunswick County. She began a new career as a financial adviser and became active in her community. Over the last several years, her expertise as a teacher and her experience serving others has motivated her to take action where Brunswick County needs it most: improving behavioral health access.

“This is my home now. What can I do to make this a better place for everybody?” she asked herself.

That’s when she joined Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center Foundation’s campaign to improve access to behavioral health care. Without adequate support, our most vulnerable community members often turn to drugs. Between January and June of this year, 162 documented heroin overdoses were reported, which resulted in 28 deaths in our county alone.

“I want people to face what we have facing us and be a part of the solution. I want them to put something into their budget that helps support this, whether it’s a planned gift or gifting right now,” Carolyn says. “We need to put some effort where we see the need, and the need is here, right now.”

At Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center Foundation, we work hard every day to support the behavioral health needs of our community. We are committed to providing the treatment, outreach programs and community education necessary to meet this dangerous crisis head-on.

Your support will help Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center continue to be the life-saving partner our community deserves.
