Maine Crisis Services Community Listening Project

USM researchers are looking for community members who have needed crisis supports for themselves or others in the past 2 years.

USM is looking to talk to people who have needed crisis supports in Maine in the past two years either for themselves or others.

They are looking for people:

  • Age 16 and over
  • Who have needed to use crisis services for yourself or a close family member/friend in the past 2 years in Maine
  • Willing to join a 60-90 minute interview with a Certified Peer Support Specialist (virtual, phone, or in person options)

USM is offering a $25 gift card for completing the interview. If this sounds like you or someone you know, please see the attached flyer for more information and encourage anyone who may be interested to fill out the form.

This collaborative project is a partnership between the Maine Office of Behavioral Health and the University of Southern Maine, Catherine Cutler Institute. We are looking to engage community members with lived experience in order to gather stories and feedback, address gaps and barriers, and establish recommendations for sustainable, community driven reform.

For questions or help filling out the form, please reach out to Madison at or Brooke at
