Book Discussion: A Mother’s Reckoning

onThis year, the Summer Read partners (WellSpan Health, Capitol Blue Cross, WITF Transforming Health) chose the book, A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy, by Sue Klebold, mother of Dylan Klebold, who was one of the two Columbine High School shooters. Summer Read partners chose the book because they recognized the need to raise awareness about mental health and the need for increased access to care and resources.

The Better Together Behavioral Health Action Team is hosting a book discussion during Downtown Lebanon’s Mental Health Week. Join us as we discuss the growing need for mental health awareness.

Building a Resilient Lebanon County

Building resilient and trauma informed communities is essential to improving public health and well-being. Communities can be places where traumatic events occur, and they can also help keep us safe. They can be a source of trauma, or buffer us against the negative effects of adversity. Communities can collectively experience trauma much like individuals do, and they can be a resource for healing. Find out more at this session.

Free to attend, but limited to 30 individuals per session
Please call/text 717.380.9714 or email blllink@mail.com
