to the test to learn how to communicate
with his new person.

In Thornton Wilder's Our Town, addiction, mental illness, and suicide were silent specters looming in the background of Grover's Corners. To conclude the NEA Big Read 2020, Marty Norman of the Wabash Valley Recovery Alliance,
Jaymie Wood of FSA Counseling, and Christina Crist of Team of Mercy will break the silence and discuss the prevalence of substance dependence, mental illness, and suicide in Vigo County. Each speaker will explain the importance of having open conversations, how the community can help those in need overcome the hurdles of recovery, and what resources are available to assist. A question-and-answer session will follow.
