The Granite State News Collaborative is pleased to announce the official launch of this news cooperative as well as its first project Granite Solutions.
The GSNC is a group of news, education and media outlets that have agreed to work together to pool resources, time and talent to create stories that start conversations, investigate solutions and ultimately benefit their communities and their readers.
The collaborative’s first project will be a series of multimedia stories that take a look at the behavioral health crises hitting New Hampshire. It is a complex issue that connects addiction, social isolation, dislocation resulting from economic change, the out-migration of youth, and marginalization.
