TINHIH Foundation presents the 7th Annual Black Monday Public Education Forum on Monday, February 10th, 2020 to help raise awareness of the opioid epidemic impacting our community.
The event will be held at Central Christian Church’s Henderson Campus from 4pm – 9pm (1001 New Beginnings Drive, Henderson, NV 89011). In the last six years, TINHIH has become a leader in the recovery community as well as a vocal advocate for sustainable recovery programs at the local, state and federal level. TINHIH’s long term objective is to become the very first opioid-specific recovery support provider.
TINHIH’s banner achievement is the creation of CCSD’s Mission High School in downtown Las Vegas which opened in the Fall of 2017. Mission High School is recognized as the first entirely public-funded, recovery-focused school of its kind in the nation. TINHIH hosts annual events to raise funds for treatment / sober living scholarships, provide life scholarships to the graduating Seniors from Mission High School, and sustain The Alternative Peer Group – a drop-in teen center for youth to participate in sober activities.
We invite you and your colleagues to join us for Black Monday 2020 with our Keynote Speaker, Court McGee. Court is an active fighter in the UFC and was the winner of Season 11 of the Ultimate Fighter. Court credits his success to the recovery he found a few years prior to his win after being declared clinical deceased for over eight minutes due to a heroin overdose. Court now travels the country in between fights to speak to audiences about his journey through his non-profit, The McGee Project. In addition, Overdose Prevention & Narcan Administration trainings will be conducted by Dr. David Slattery from Las Vegas Fire & Rescue.
The Recovery Resource Fair will consist of over 40 local providers ranging from 12-step support groups to housing support. The last highlight will be the construction of a carnation wall, to remember those we have lost from overdose, to celebrate those who have overcome their addiction and to honor those still struggling. Family and friends are encouraged to submit photos for our video that depicts this moving memorial. Please submit to: firstname.lastname@example.org
