We are keeping a close eye on the forecast for June 28th. As of today, it looks like it will be a beautiful day so we're planning to hold the event outdoors, utilizing the outdoor stage and lawn area. We'll have plenty of water and beverages for all attendees along with a misting tent to help attendees stay cool throughout the day.

Attendees will also be able go inside to visit the partner information tables.

This is a casual event so attendees are encouraged to wear attire that they will be comfortable in during an outdoor summer event.

If the forecast shifts and predicts storms or a heat index of over 90, we will shift the event to the indoor portion of the facility.

Thanks to our conference partners!
We want to extend a special thanks to the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Peg's Foundation, Ohio PRO, Ohio Citizen Advocates for Addiction Recovery, NAMI Ohio, and the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation for partnering with us to support this event and providing resources for individuals and family members in attendance.
