DC Technology Office Launches Its ‘Get Connected’ Awareness Campaign

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Today, the Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) announced its “Get Connected” campaign, an exciting new outreach initiative, to raise public awareness in the District of Columbia of the benefits of having access to technology in the home and connect families to the information, resources and services they need. OCTO has teamed up with EveryoneOn, a national nonprofit, and eight community leaders to help families on the other side of the digital divide get online and gain basic digital skills.


Where to Get Help

Find a Service Provider


DBH contracts with community based providers to provide mental health services and supports. You can contact a provider of your choice directly or call the Access Helpline for assistance. DBH certifies each provider to ensure conformity to federal and District regulations and monitors quality of care.

Help for Stressful Economic Times

Depression and anxiety are normal reactions to abnormal times or stress. With increased concerns about losing jobs, homes and savings, more people are showing signs of psychological distress. It’s important for us all to learn to recognize the symptoms of depression so we can get help for ourselves or for others when it’s needed.

I Am the Difference
Sometimes we just need someone
to listen to our problems to feel better.
