FREE Mental Health & Drug Abuse Prevention Workshop on May 14 @7-9pm at Faith UMC
We are inviting in experts on these subjects from local social service agencies to come in and provide this training. Mental health struggles and the opioid crisis are epidemics that are taking the lives of so many people and impacting their family and friends. In many cases the individuals who are impacted have underlying mental health struggles that fuel their addiction. We cannot keep silent about either of these topics and the lives they impact nor can we allow them to stigmatize people. We are inviting everyone to this informative session--whether you or a loved are struggling you are welcome to join us.
Please mark your calendar and stay tuned for more information. Tickets will be required--although they will be FREE. We need to monitor seating and parking. If there is more interest than our facilities can handle, we will look to offer additional sessions and/or locations. Contact Pastor Jason at (717) 333-9238 if you have questions. If you are actively struggling and need help now, please call 211 for support--or 911 if it is an emergency.

We will explore how to make decisions on complicated issues for ourselves and our society that are righteous and just in the eyes of God. This is not partisan.
