Upcoming EVENTS

@ Bethany Church
Oct 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Bethany Church is hosting two workshops to educate and answer a lot of the most common questions about PTSD and its treatments.

We anticipate these sessions will continue as needs based, peer to peer support groups.

Bethany already has a FREE WED community family style meal at 5:15 pm and activities for kids and youth during the workshop.

-Do I or a loved one have PTSD? (Military/ First Responder /Domestic Abuse)
-How does it affect brain chemistry?
-How do I identify triggers?
-How do I mitigate triggers?
-What resources and support are available in my community?

These sessions will be facilitated by Pastor Scotty Coyle a combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. He is not a clinical psychologist, his focus is peer to peer support and referrals, when needed.
