We will restart our weekly Family Workshops on TUESDAY, March 9th with a 4-week series provided by Dr. Crystal Collier. She is a therapist and educator who has been working with adolescents and adults suffering from mental illness, behavioral problems and substance use disorders since 1991. This informative series will be offered on Microsoft Teams live from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm and will cover stress (3/9), substance abuse (3/23), technology (3/30) and behavior modification (4/6). To learn more about her story and her powerful message, please visit her website.
We strongly encourage you to watch The Science of High Risk Behavior prior to the first session as we had to cut this foundational session due to the winter storm disruption. If you are watching on a laptop, you can view the video with subtitles in your preferred language by turning on captions then selecting your preferred language from the dropdown menu under the icon that looks like a gear.
