Event Type

I will be presenting my personal story and what I’ve learned about mental illness and addiction to the parents at St. Gertrude’s.

Coming to this presentation does not mean you have a child that is addicted

It means you are aware this is the environment your child is growing up in and want more eduction on what that is is important so you can guide your child on a path to success.

I am co-presenting with Bill Maher, a nationally-known and well-respected substance use disorder interventionist who lives in Richmond, VA and works with families to help loved ones find resources for recovery and healthy living.

This is a parent education presentation and open to the community. St. Gertrude’s is being proactive on the subjects of mental illness and addiction.
