Gain a deeper understanding of mental illness and how it not only affects the individual but those around them as well. In addition, you will be given the opportunity to see the negative impact of self-medicating with drugs and alcohol.  Ask all the questions you’ve ever wanted to know about mental illness and substance abuse, but didn’t know who or how to ask.
