Let’s Get Smarter with Melissa Ackley, LCSW on July 25th

FACES offers ten Community Education Meetings each year. Our goal is to ask the experts and those with lived experience in all aspects of the mental health and wellness field to come speak so we can find peace of mind and have less stress when caring for our loved ones with a brain disorder. Better mental health outcomes for all is our ultimate goal.

Please join us on via Zoom Tuesday, July 25, 2023 for our Community Education with the amazing Melissa Ackley of Chesterfield Mental Health.
