Strong Minds: Resilience @ JCPL at Meeting Room 5/6
Jun 1 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

A healthy mind is the foundation for a happy life, but maintaining mental well-being is an ongoing struggle for many of us. The “Strong Minds” series addresses the ways in which we can overcome events, situations and stressors that do damage to our minds and quality of life.

Our first program will focus on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and trauma.  Nationally certified school psychologist, Amber Bruner will be our host.  There will be free dinner, an introduction to multiple community resources, and a screening of the movie “Resilience.”  

No registration is required.
