In response to COVID-19, the Substance Use Prevention & Harm Reduction Division (SUPHR) will be offering a live virtual overdose awareness and reversal training that will cover the basics of reversing an opioid overdose and additional COVID-19 risk reduction tips. Those who register & provide a shipping address can receive Narcan mailed to them after the training. If you have health insurance or are a well-resourced person, please consider paying for naloxone on your own, as this allows us to reserve our supply for those in our community who have the least access.
Is escalating violence in our city a response to trauma? Join the Office of Faith-Based and Interfaith Affairs and the Faith and Spiritual Affairs Initiative of the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services for a conversation about how houses of worship can become well-equipped to address the effects of trauma in our communities.
The Survivors of Suicide Loss Support Group is a group to help loss survivors cope, connect, and work toward healing. Trained group facilitators are suicide loss survivors who know firsthand how difficult it can be to find your way after losing someone to suicide. The group is open to anyone 18 years or older who is grieving a loss due to suicide. The group is free, confidential, and meets the second Wednesday of each month. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org COVID19 Update: We want to prioritize your health and safety while still offering our support in your grief.
