CCSAP staff, board members and task force members attended a presentation and panel discussion on substance abuse, suicide awareness and mental health recently at Pamlico County High School. The program was called Start the Conversation: Crisis in our Community. Nicole Cox, a certified youth mental health trainer, spoke about her brother’s suicide and her family’s struggles with mental health. Henry Rice with Pamlico County Schools was the panel moderator, and the panel included Pamlico County Sheriff Chris Davis, Nicole Cox, parent Roxanne Watts and Chris Meadows, principal of Pamlico County High School. Adam Caldwell from the office of U.S. Senator Thom Tillis attended the event.
CCSAP staff was honored to participate in the Rethink that Drink event on base. It was a privilege to speak with these young adults.
CCSAP staff and Jeff Sieber from the Onslow County Task Force spent the day at Richlands High School asking students to sign the I PROMise pledge. Students from the SADD club (Students Against Destructive Decisions) volunteered to gather kids around our table to talk about the important decisions they will be making this weekend. CCSAP also took the message to West Craven High School this week. Have a SAFE, fun weekend!
