Dear Friend,

During the COVID-19 pandemic, children have been unable to see their family or friends in person. They’ve been afraid of illness, experienced stress at home and adjusted to new forms of learning. To address mental health and the long-term impact of trauma, I will be hosting a virtual town hall on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and resiliency.

Our community needs to be aware now more than ever of adverse childhood experiences, the potential long-term outcomes and the factors that can help prevent the impact of trauma. For young people to thrive and meet their fullest potential, they must have access to mental health assistance. Mental health is an integral part of overall well-being.

The event will take place TONIGHT at 6:30 p.m. and will include panelists from the Warren Center Line Prevention Coalition, BEAT (Brightmoor Education Action Team), CARE and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Community members will be able to join the event via Zoom here. You can also join on one tap mobile at (312) 626-6799 with the passcode 89541122660#. If you’d like to join by telephone, you may dial (312) 626-6799. The webinar ID for Zoom is 895 4112 2660.
