An informal community discussion today called “Help and Hope” will connect community members with services in and around Juneau for adolescents struggling with emotional or other behavioral issues.
From 6-7:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity Church’s McPhetres Hall, Kathryn Chapman, the executive director of Juneau’s National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency, will speak with family members and friends of young adults battling difficult emotional states, dealing with anxiety, sadness, developmental deficiencies or drugs and alcohol issues.
Also on hand will be Patricia Phelan, who has assisted families in Juneau and around the country in finding appropriate educational and/or therapeutic settings for pre-adolescents to young adults with a wide variety of needs.
“Help and Hope” is free of charge. It is sponsored by National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Juneau Affiliate and the Juneau Community Foundation.
For more information, call Katie Chapman at 463-3755.
