Over the past few months, as a member of the Prevention Collaborative we have been working on planning and hosting an event to spread awareness about the dangers of mental health problems and prescription drug abuse in our community. We hosted the Veterans Forum on Mental Health and Prescription Drugs at Wayne County Community College's downtown campus. The event was a huge success! We had over 85 people in attendance, a great panel of professionals and veterans to speak on our subject and provide invaluable information about the services available to veterans in our community, and multiple vendors who provide a backbone of support. We would like to thank all who came out, and those that provided their time and efforts to our cause.
