INFluence Forum: Mental Health, Addictions, and Tobacco

In Local News on March 6, 2009 at 2:49 pm

The Daviess and Pike county tobacco prevention and cessation coalitions are hosting an INFluence forum on March 16 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the IP&L Communications building on SR 57 north of Petersburg. Tom Lux of Mental Health America’s ReThink Tobacco Project will talk about strategies and support for people who struggle with these three issues. Pete Aldrich of Lighthouse Recovery Center in Washington and Petersburg will be the introductory speaker.

Several groups and organizations in both counties have helped organize this event, and a few more are setting up informational booths. This will be a great time to learn about how tobacco effects people who struggle with mental health and addictions issues, and to form a plan for how to tackle these problems. There will also be light refreshments and door prize drawings. We’re looking foward to seeing all of you there!!!
