1 min read

What happens when you or someone you love experience a tough subject such as depression, substance misuse or suicide? Does anyone talk about it in your home or is it an avoidable topic?

From 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, professionals will address the elephant in the room at the USC Beaufort Center for the Arts. This is a free event that is open to the public.

Come out and listen to Shavon Jenkins- Coaxum, M.A., LPC, LAC, MAC and Edward Dela Fuente, LCDC-1 speak and ask them any questions you may have on these topics.

Before the event (5:30 p.m.) there will be resource tables in the lobby with information on local support groups pertaining the topics discussed. This event is a community partnership between The Beaufort County Alcohol and Drug Abuse Department, USCB Center for the Arts and The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office and is a part of the Engage Series offered monthly through the Center for the Arts.

“Engage Beaufort” is a monthly series of forums on topics that impact our lives ranging from mental health to environmental issues. Engage is free and open to the public.
