Share Your Opioid Story Initiative’s Centre County Community Conversation, May 30

Penn State University’s Share Your Opioid Story Initiative (www.shareyouropioidstory.com) is hosting a Community Conversation on Thursday, May 30, 2019 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at Schlow Library. This conversation will highlight how we as a community can work to address the stigma associated with the opioid epidemic. We’ll hear from Trisha Stouch (you can view her story here: http://shareyouropioidstory.com/tricia-s-delaware-county-pa/), and talk about how she has overcome the stigma of losing her daughter from an opioid overdose. Throughout this conversation we will engage the audience to explore how each of us can dispel the myths of stigma associated with substance use disorders, while supporting those who are seeking recovery or working through grief. This event is being held in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs.
