This forum is open to the community, parents, caregivers and professionals that serve youth.
In 2020 alone, Yavapai County lost FIVE youth to drug overdoses. This heart wrenching statistic is not isolated to 2020 nor our county. Substance abuse and drug experimentation know no barriers and each community has been impacted by this ongoing drug epidemic. To support youth, a public forum will be offered to link individuals and families with Yavapai County-based services that support and serve youth and adolescents.
Please join Yavapai County Community Health Services and MATFORCE on Thursday, March 18th from 1:00P-3:00P as they host a Youth Services Connection Forum. Several local agencies will present to increase awareness on services that assist youth. This event is open to the community, with parents, caregivers, and professionals that serve youth strongly encouraged to attend.
