“We hope this event will raise awareness of mental health issues and suicide prevention in our communities,” stated Becky Parker, Clinical Director at Fremont Counseling Service.
Always remember, when you’re struggling and in crisis, call or text 988, and a trained counselor will listen, support, and share resources with you. You don’t need to go through this alone!
White Buffalo Recovery Center will be celebrating Recovery Month with the 2022 Recovery Celebration on September 1st and 2nd. The celebration will be held in St. Stephens, Wyoming in the field in front of the church.
Join them for recovery speakers, food, crafts, culture, and a sense of love, hope, happiness and humor. Call 851-0789 or 856-0478 for more information.

Together we can bring more awareness to mental health and suicide prevention. These events are for anyone, not just those who are struggling. It’s equally important for anyone who may be a support to someone else or who may want to learn how to be that support.
