As you all are probably aware, events during the year of 2017 have caused a tremendous ripple effect in the hearts and minds of many Americans. Some of these shifts continue to be felt throughout many communities across the nation and Highlands county has been no exception. DFH is dedicated to bringing together the services and businesses who refuse to shy away from issues that matter most in these times.
Subjects such as mental health, addiction, inter-connectedness, and human rights have become more prevalent in recent conversations so as a result, we’ve assumed the role of facilitating actions and pressing for resolve that benefit everyone in all the lovely towns and cities within our county.
Lunch, Listen, and Learn is happening at the DFH offices every first Friday of the month. The event is about an hour long and we go LIVE on Facebook to discuss certain topics that require a variety of perspectives. Anyone is welcome to attend but we want your opinion on the event itself. Please head over to our Facebook page and hit play on a video; send us precious feedback so that these conversations thrive for as long as possible. Text “Inform” to 21777 when you’re ready to share. Talking won’t fix anything alone however it will keep change going in the right direction.
Prevention work is never done and it almost seems the doors to progress are revolving much more quickly at DFH. The goals are not to invent new ways of communication but to relay ideas to appropriate parties and develop citizens who then feel empowered and knowledgeable enough to better their surrounding for families and neighbors everywhere! Fresh ideas, however, are always welcomed by Drug Free Highlands and although these creative waves may look like positive marks and worthy causes, the energy they take to maintain them is an amount that is truly aspirational for the tiny group.
The website you are currently reading this post in is undergoing major construction, which could use your input again, in the hopes to capture our mission and share local companies, organizations, and others that wish to create a hub of up-to-date wellness information. Free for all to use, drugfreehighlands.org will be a place of refuge, relief, resource – open to those seeking answers close to home and sensitive in nature.
Highlands county can feel simultaneously big and small, yet also manages to grow with concerns day to day just like any area. We all can, not only make a difference in those concerns but stay relevant for the sake of the cities we live in and those unespected adventures that await. Feel like doing more humanitarian work?
