Please plan to join us on January 11th to spend a simulated month in the poverty experienced by our community’s individuals and families. This interactive event promotes poverty awareness, increases understanding, and inspires local change. Following the simulation, we will discuss how circumstances of poverty create barriers to treatment and stability for the many individuals living with mental illness and substance abuse, and how we can work as a community to address these barriers.

This simulation is being provided and presented by the Rutherford County Behavioral Health Coalition and NETworX Rutherford Free of charge
