As mental health awareness month approaches, it is important to take every opportunity to combat the negative attitudes, prejudices and discriminations around mental health and substance use in our communities. KCRC recognizes how important it is to change mental health and substance use stigma by changing the narrative. One way to do this is through conversation. Please join us for KCRC’s Recovery Lifestyle featuring Cofounder, Alysse Bryson of The Sober Curator on Thursday April 15th at 1pm Pacific. REGISTER HERE!
