To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the cancelation or postponement of all events and gatherings of 50 or more people over the next eight weeks. As a result, the County of SLO Behavioral Health Department is postponing all in person trainings and events. This includes all SLO County Friday Night Live programming, including chapter meetings, events, and Board meetings. Thank you for your understanding at this time!

When we cannot find the words to describe how we feel or what we are thinking, it helps to find other ways to demonstrate the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
A glitter jar is one of the most powerful visual metaphors for that connection; it illustrates how mindfulness—the cultivation of stillness in the face of swirling chaos of life—affects us. This activity is helpful for all ages!
