June 25: Bouncing Back: How Resilience is the Key to Stronger Communities
Melanie Morris, Roanoke Prevention Alliance Director, will lead a discussion about what it means to be resilient. Here’s your primer:
There are some serious issues in our society that we all want desperately to fix — things like homelessness, domestic abuse, drug dependency, incarceration, disease, depression and other mental illness, and poverty. And we certainly don’t want our children to grow up and become incarcerated, drug dependent, diseased, or depressed. It isn’t a mystery how these issues take hold; they have roots in childhood events and circumstances. If we can learn how to intervene in a child’s life and teach resilience, then we change his or her future and make our community stronger.
