Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. To Hold an Open House in Celebration of National Prevention Week on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM

May 2014 – National Prevention Week will be celebrated May 18 – 24th this year. National Prevention Week is an annual health observance dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, substance abuse and mental health issues; it is an opportunity to join with other individuals, organizations, and coalitions in our community to promote prevention efforts, educate others about behavioral health issues, and create and strengthen community partnerships.

Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc., invites you to join them on Wednesday, May 21st at their Utica Office, 502 Court Street, Suite 401 from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM to find out how you can get involved in creating a healthier community that embraces wellness. Find out how to support a variety of prevention efforts, as well as how to get involved in Project Recover, a systematic community-wide support network for individuals in recovery, and their families. Perhaps you’re interested in getting involved in the Suicide Prevention Coalition? Maybe you’re interested in being a mentor for a youth, adult or veteran living with a mental illness or dual diagnosis?

Each day of National Prevention week will have a special theme. You are encouraged to visit CFLR, Inc’s FaceBook page throughout the week to learn more about each theme, including: Prevention and Cessation of Tobacco Use; Prevention of Underage Drinking; Prevention of Prescription Drug Abuse and Marijuana Use; Prevention of Alcohol Abuse; Prevention of Suicide; and Promotion of Mental Health.
