National Prevention Week
View this email in your browser
Good evening Kathy,
We hope this newsletter finds you well, and enjoying the sunshine and warmer temperatures! There are a lot of conversations and opportunities for our community happening, which bring us inspiration, motivation, and HOPE. As always, we want to let you know details and thank you for all that you do to help RCFY continue to do Prevention work in the community.

We have information, resources and events happening from right here in Raymond, as well as nationally to share with you.

 
National Prevention Week, May 14-20

This week, RCFY is promoting National Prevention Week - National Prevention Week is a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)-sponsored annual health observance dedicated to increasing the prevention of substance use and promotion of mental health.

The National Prevention Week 2017 theme is “Making Each Day Count.” We all play an important role - individuals and communities alike - in helping people lead healthy, productive lives and in raising awareness about the importance of substance use prevention and promotion of mental health.

We will be sharing resources every day, from this list, about each of these topics: 

Last week, we hosted a community forum:
"Keeping Our Youth and Community Safe and Drug-Free" 
We know this is a huge issue in our community, and had many resources on-hand to help connect people to the help they may need. Guest speakers shared their personal experiences, in order to bring about awareness, and also to provide HOPE. We know evening events are not always easy to fit into our busy schedules, so we are very grateful to Raymond Community Television for recording the entire presentation for us, AND making a few shorter segments of some of our key presentations. Please take a look at these videos, and share them. We are working hard to break stigma, to talk about these difficult issues, and to make a difference. Start the conversation and keep it going! Prevention works and we are making a difference as a community.
