As we are all aware:   COVID-19 has taken over our lives. Unfortunately, the mental health challenges that many of us face, do not take a pause.
 
Past President of the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor, Collyer Smith will be presenting:
 
A Parent’s Journey Into Mental Health
 
Once hearing his journey….. sadly, a journey too many parents have taken, we will have a better understanding of the mental health challenges our youth faces.
 
We will also have a better understanding of the despair their parents go through.

With this better understanding, it is Collyer’s hope that we will participate in a very special event in 2021, which he will share at the end of his talk.
