Stigma-Free September Wraps Up At Library With Event

The two-hour event will help participants work to improve their ability to communicate a clear message to teens on bullying, drugs, peer pressure, suicide and substance use under the guidance of professional speaker and counselor Anna Toby and professional storyteller Rivka
Toby will lead a candid and honest conversation with adults about substance use and the challenges of today’s youth. Willick will share her unique system to discover, shape, transform, and share personal stories focused on the topics that matter.
