League of Idaho Cities Announces Lewiston Stop for Mental Health Tour

BOISE – The League of Idaho Cities is proud to announce the Tandem Tour for mental health will be at the Lewiston Community Center at 1424 Main Street on Wednesday, May 11 beginning at 4:30 p.m.


The Tour is a series of presentations around the state for youth involved in Mayor’s Youth Advisory Councils (MYACs) or other leadership groups focused on shining a light on mental health awareness, drug, and alcohol abuse prevention, suicide prevention, youth leadership, and building community capacity.


Working with music therapist Audrey Draper, attendees will learn to identify a peer who may be struggling, how to gain access to mental health resources, and skills to help them cope with the challenges brought on by COVID-19.


Attendees will each receive a toolkit with resources to help them navigate life’s challenges. Funding for this event was made possible, in part by NH75OT000105 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators do not reflect the official policies of the Department or CDC, nor does mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.


Additional support was provided by the Association of Idaho Cities, the Idaho State Insurance Fund (SIF), the Idaho Independent Intergovernmental Authority (III-A), Optum Idaho, Idaho Central Credit Union, Blue Cross of Idaho, and the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health.
