Rural Substance Abuse & Mental Health Summit - In Person
with Lesley Hersey
Rural communities are faced with challenges different than those of more urban areas. Resources are limited, especially when it comes to programs for substance abuse recovery and mental health services for those we love. However, rural communities possess qualities and hidden gems that other areas do not. This summit will focus on discovering those hidden gems and enhancing the strengths your community contains to improve services for those struggling with substance abuse, mental health problems or suicidal thoughts, including the role the local church plays in the health of our community.
Keynote presenters: Bethanie Tucker from the Aha Process, and Tanner & Andrea Clemonts from Tennesse.
