MAY 28, 2019 BHA MEETING

“Attachment and Trauma” Presentation Planned for May BHA Meeting

Jack Flight, Director of Social Services at Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital in New Lenox, will be the guest presenter at the BHA’s May 28th meeting.  He will discuss attachment, the emotional relationship between a child and a “regular caregiver.”  Attachment is a very important process and relationship that can be disrupted by trauma and lead to a cycle of trauma.  Download the May 28 BHA Meeting Flyer here.

This meeting will be held at 3 p.m. at Joliet Junior College’s Morris Education Center, 725 School Street (Door 27), Morris.

One CEU is planned at a cost of $5 for LSW/LCSW, LPC/LCPC or RN.  Thank you to the Grundy County Health Department for making this possible.  Registration will be conducted at the door.  For more information, email: [email protected]

Download the Grundy County Community Resource Directory

With the help of BHA members and local providers, a revised and enlarged Grundy Resource Directory  has been developed for Grundy County.  The directory is organized by topic section (e.g. education, substance use disorder, etc.) and is indexed.

The Directory is a project under Chestnut Health Systems’ Substance Abuse Prevention Services grant under Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery.

Because directories become outdated quickly, the process of revisions and corrections is taking place immediately.  To report or suggest changes, please email the new or corrected information to [email protected]
