Workshops & Support Groups

Our workshops provide all our community members with an opportunity to learn. Sharing useful information on vulnerable topics initiates conversation.

Conversations make a difference. We offer a vast amount of workshops covering topics like: NARCAN, QPR, Mental Health First Aid, Vaping 101, and Substance Abuse Information.

EYS hopes that adults maintain the same amount of peer support that we know to be essential for our children. This is why we have created parent support groups that encourage open communication among caregivers.
