Cheers or Fears
May 2, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The Center for Mental Health is hosting a community presentation and discussion, “Cheers or Fears: What’s Your Relationship to Substances?” at the Gunnison Arts Center, 102 S. Main Street, Gunnison. Lite refreshments and appetizers will be provided by the GRASP Coalition. Licensed counselors and addiction professionals from The Center’s Gunnison office will present on our current understanding of substance use disorders, what some of the misconceptions are about substance use and misuse, how to recognize when someone might be having a problem using substances, and where to get help.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
