The Bellevue Cause Community Network hosted a Power Conference on December 19th as a piece of a larger project funded by Highmark Delaware called the “Talk About it” campaign. (For more #TalkAboutItInfo visit www.talkaboutitde.com )
During the virtual sessions students were led through an interactive conversation about the repercussions of drug use and how to navigate the effects that drugs can have on themselves and their communities. Participants heard from prevention guest speakers from the Delaware Prevention Partners, the Drug Enforcement Administration, local nonprofits like Starfish Casters, Brandywine Counseling Community Network, Social Justice Alliance and tips on healthy mental health practices from Delaware Odyssey of the Mind, and the Delaware Contemporary Center. Even special surprise guest messages from special guests Trech from Naughty by Nature, Souja Boy, Roger Bumpass (The voice of Squidward) and Youtuber DangMattSmith.
