Many people know little about the opioid epidemic or the science of addiction. One way to increase general awareness within a community is to host a seminar on the topic. It can be as detailed as a workshop tailored for first responders or as relaxed as a PowerPoint presentation viewed at a town hall meeting.
How can I do that?
- Contact your local anti- drug coalition or the Tennessee Department of Mental Health for resources on lectures, programs, speakers and other materials.
- Decide on a date for the event.
- Choose a location to hold your seminar and reserve the space.
- Tell everyone! Invite your community to attend your seminar(s), but be sure to let them know any other important instructions (i.e. space is limited, any costs involved, registration information).
