Network News - February/March 2018

Happy 2018!

I hope the year has gotten off to a great start for you. We have been busy working on many upcoming events that we hope all can attend. We have our first network meeting on Feb. 15th a new Mental Health First Aid for Older Adults Training on March 15th and the 10th annual Medical-Spirituality Conference in April. We are also pleased to announce our collaboratively sponsored event for the community on May 9th Finding Our Voice: Talking About Mental Illness and Equipping the Faith Community. More information on these events is in this newsletter.

We wish to thank everyone for their caring messages about the closing of Good Samaritan Hospital later this year. As you can imagine it is a challenging time for everyone. We are moving on with business and all our upcoming plans. Should you have further questions about the closure please call the Community Hotline at (833) 804-3447(833) 804-3447, or 499-9174.

Wishing you continued blessings in your ministry, Sharon
