FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The first Community Couch Conversation is this Thursday at the Lido Theatre.
Collaboratively hosted by Healthy FSJ and the Fort St. John Community Action Team, the Opioid Dialogues will be a night of learning and compassion.
Local, front-line health and social service workers will provide an update on the current opioid situation within Fort St. John.
Attendees will also have a chance to listen to the real-life stories of those who experienced substance use and addiction.
“The goal of Community Couch Conversation is to foster a supportive evening, where the community comes together to learn, listen and think about how we can be there for one another to build a healthy and resilient community in the face of the opioid crisis,” says a statement from Healthy FSJ.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with the panel event running from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Lido.
