Members of CAHS’ Prevention and Addiction Recovery Services (ARS) divisions attended the “Out of the Darkness Greater Baton Rouge Walk,” held Oct. 7, at Pennington Biomedical Research Center.

Team members provided magnetized Medication Record charts and information about opioid misuse prevention, emotional intelligence, and CAHS’ services to more than 150 attendees. They also distributed information about the dangers of vaping, nicotine, and gambling.

According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention website, the Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance, hope, and support. It is held to unite communities and provide opportunities to acknowledge the ways that suicide and mental health conditions affect individuals, families, and other loved ones.
