Wilton Library

Intended Audience: Parents and Caregivers

The impact social media can have on our children's mental health has been in the news a lot lately. We know too much tech can be harmful, but we sometimes struggle with finding the right balance in our own homes. Wilton Youth Council is pleased to bring Claudia Erickson, BSW MPH and Co-founder of the Unplugged Collaborative, to deliver the keynote address for this year’s Mental Health Action Month. Join Claudia to learn more about the current technology landscape and what our kids want us to know about their relationship with social media. We’ll talk about our greatest tech concerns.  Using the latest research, Claudia will give us practical, creative ideas on how we can encourage healthier digital habits in our families. Claudia will show us how to find greater tech-life balance in a distracted world!

This training provides information on opioids that include street drugs (like heroin) and prescription drugs (like Oxycontin). Opioid overdoses have become an epidemic; in Connecticut, on average, two people die every day from an opioid overdose. By the end of this training you will learn how to administer naloxone, also known as Narcan, which can reverse an opioid overdose in a few minutes.
