On August 21st, Unison recognized International Overdose Awareness Day by holding a balloon release in Mary Street Park. Purple balloons were released in memory of those who have died due to an overdose and silver balloons were released in honor of those in recovery.


Eddie Davis got to fulfill a longtime dream of meeting her idol, renowned cook, Paula Deen.   Eddie also met her sons Jamie and Bobby and she, along with the rest of the group, enjoyed eating lunch in “The Lady and Sons” restaurant. What made the day extra special was that we were placed at the front of the line by the very kind, gracious official photographer, Christine Hall. Ms. Hall has an autistic daughter and was well aware of what it takes to serve special needs adults. She also chatted with me and some of the others and I will never forget her kindness that day. Of course Eddie had the biggest thrill of all meeting Ms. Deen who chatted with her and had several pictures made. They all seemed interested in Unison and what we do.


April Roberson and Lesley White provided an Adult MHFA training to staff at Coffee Regional Medical Center August 15th. This is the first of four trainings that will be provided this month. We are grateful that our community is eager to learn more about mental health to reduce stigma and how to reach out and offer help to someone who may need it.


Unison staff members, Laneshia Sellers and Hannah Davis are currently featured on the Waycross Memorial Stadium Marquee along with Memorial Drive Elementary principal, Dr. Wendy Goode and school counselor, Tiffany Warren. Memorial Drive School is thanking Unison on the marquee for all of the support.
