Adult Education Sessions

These FREE addiction and mental health education sessions focus on the 3 R’s:

reduce stigma, receive information, and reflect on strategies.

Each session is intended to provide participants with introductory information regarding addiction and mental health challenges that can affect us all, evidence-based research, possible treatment options, supportive strategies, and information/resources for further support. When topics are presented as a series, participants can attend one or all sessions.


Through Caring, Connecting, and Coping

Resiliency is something we want but often do not know how we can help it grow in our own lives. Join us for this 90-minute evening webinar where we will learn about stress and burnout, the power of resilience in getting through the ‘tough stuff’, and how self-compassion and self-care are essential to our well-being. We will discuss strategies for building our own personal supportive networks and inner coping skills to strengthen our ability to ‘bounce back’.
