    Family Game Night


    What happens when you gather some BHS Broncos Committed volunteers, families and Dave the Game Guy with his mom and a bunch of great games? A whole lot of laughter, fun, learning and community building.

    Over 70 participants filled the Library meeting space on the evening of Friday, March 15 for a Family Game Night, a joint event sponsored by BStrong Together and the Barrington Area Library with game support from Dave of Gamers World.

    The families who attended this event tried some new games, met some new families and participated in a few silly group games. The smiles, energy and positive feedback generated from this event inspired us to bring you ANOTHER Family Game Night to kick off the summer!

    Bring your gently-used, retired games to swap with others and take home a new game to try!

    Adult Mental Health First Aid Training

    8:30 am-4:30 pm

    Mental Health First Aid for Adults
    Saturday, June 8th
    8:30 AM- 4:30 PM
    Location: TBD in Barrington
    ADULT MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID is an in-depth training ideal for anyone who deals with the public on a regular basis. It was developed because mental health diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, impulse control and misuse of alcohol and other drugs are shockingly common in the United States. In fact, more than 1 in 4 American adults will have a mental health challenge in any given year. The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has begun working with community advocates to implement MHFA that equips the public with skills to help individuals developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The clinical and qualitative data demonstrates that this program helps the public better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness, thus improving outcomes for individuals with these illnesses. The training is for anyone interested in learning more about symptoms of mental illness and how to respond to someone in a mental health crisis. It is open to the community.
