Paper Tigers – May 26 @ HCCC

SAVE THE DATE

Upstate Cerebral Palsy, in collaboration with the Herkimer County Department of Mental Health and the Herkimer County Youth Violence Prevention Committee will host a showing of the documentary film Paper Tigers on Thursday, May 26, 2016 at Herkimer College.

Paper Tigers, One High School’s Unlikely Success Story, is an intimate look into the lives of students at Lincoln High School, an alternative high school that specializes in educating traumatized youth. The film examines what trauma informed schools and communities can do to help youth struggling with the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).  ACE includes verbal, physical or sexual abuse, as well as family dysfunction. The Centers for Disease Control conducted the ACE Study, one of the largest investigations ever to assess associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being.

Registration information and additional presentation details will be available shortly.

FOR-NY Addiction Recovery Needs Survey

A message from our friends at FOR-NY:
 
Dear Friends,
As we work together to strengthen community based recovery, the voices of individuals, family members and allies impacted by addiction are our most valuable asset. To that end, we’re asking for your assistance in distributing the FOR-NY Recovery Needs Survey to your friends, colleagues, and family members throughout New York State whose lives have been impacted by addiction to alcohol or other drugs.
The purpose of the survey is to determine the current needs, strengths, and gaps in community addiction recovery services and supports for individuals and families in recovery. Data collected will help FOR-NY understand priorities that should be addressed in the areas of needs, resources, and challenges for the Recovery Community. Ultimately, the data we gather will help us better advocate for improved access to quality addiction recovery services and supports for individuals and families.
If you haven’t yet completed the survey, please click on the link below to complete it. (It only takes a few minutes! We promise!). If you have completed it, please consider forwarding it to friends, colleagues, or family members who’ve been impacted by addiction.
Furthermore, if you know someone impacted by addiction who would be interested in completing the survey, but doesn’t have access to a computer, please print out as many copies of the surveys as needed and encourage them to complete it and return it to:
Stephanie Campbell
Director of Policy
Friends of Recovery – New York
1529 Western Ave., Albany, NY 12203
All surveys must be received by March 31. Questions can be directed to Stephanie at scampbell@for-ny.org or 518-487-4395 x16.
Thanks so much for your time. Your efforts to help us maximize the reach of this survey throughout the state will go a long way toward helping FOR-NY better advocate for improved access to quality addiction recovery services and supports for individuals and their families.
