The College of Social Sciences at the University of West Georgia will host its third annual State of the Community address on Thursday, February 15 at the UWG Campus Center. Join us for a morning of learning and networking focused on social and behavioral health in Carroll and Coweta Counties.

The morning presentations will address mental health challenges in the court system, adolescent and college student health, and the needs of our local veterans.

“The College of Social Sciences is working hard and preparing for our annual State of Community event,” said Dr. N. Jane McCandless, Dean of the College of Social Sciences. “Now in its third year, we will highlight current findings and trends related to social and behavioral health.”

“We have also expanded our efforts to include findings and trends in both Carroll and Coweta counties, added a resource fair, and have planned follow-up events that focus upon this year’s theme,” said Dean McCandless. “Issues related to social and behavioral health are certainly an important discussion to have within our communities.”

Workshops will cover documentary filmmaking and the non-profit, group decision making processes, building a non-profit from the ground up, brain development, and suicide prevention.
