WHAT WE WILL BE ADDRESSING IN THIS FORUM: In this Community Forum, we plan to:
openly discuss the issues that COVID-19 is having on mental health (in general), recovery and the physical risks for people who use nicotine, alcohol or vaping.
provide resources, such as the Georgia Crisis and Access Line, Georgia COVID-19 Hotline, the Georgia COVID-19 Emotional Support Line, and other resources.
hear people's thoughts and concerns about COVID-19's impact on their own health and well-being.
share relevant data.
WHAT WE WILL NOT BE ADDRESSING IN THIS FORUM As an important note, we do NOT plan to focus on issues such as our health care's capacity to test for or treat COVID, or our state's plans to open up parts of the economy, as those issues are beyond the scope of Fayette FACTOR and Drug Free Fayette. We acknowledge the importance of these issues to many people, but again, they are outside the scope of our organization.
We have a renowned speaker in Jeff Breedlove, Director of Communications with the Georgia Council on Substance Abuse, as well as three local therapists, recovery and mental health experts as panelists.
