You Can Help Prevent Overdose Deaths

These are uncertain and stressful times for everyone. Isolation and physical distancing from our friends and family, has resulted in many drinking more alcohol and experimenting with drugs to cope with fear, depression and boredom. Please check in on those you love! Request free Naloxone by mail at columbus.gov/cfcap, and always call 911 when someone is experiencing an overdose.

One-on-One Sessions Help Older Adults Navigate New State In Life

Aging is a beautiful process, but it can be difficult for older adults to identify necessary resources to live life to the fullest. To help alleviate this issue, Syntero provides one-on-one appointments with navigators who can help answer questions about all things related to healthy ageing, including home resources and care giving. The navigator service is offered through the Forever Dublin Hub, formed in partnership with the City of Dublin, which provides social, educational and health resources for Dublin’s older adults and caregivers. For more information about the program, read the press release from the City of Dublin.

To make a one-on-one appointment with a navigator, call 614.889.5722 extension 810. Appointments are available on Fridays and Saturdays. The Forever Dublin Hub is located at the Syntero Dublin Office at 299 Cramer Creek Court, Dublin, Ohio, 43017.

Syntero Celebrates LGBTQ+ Pride

Syntero’s Celebrate You! Facilitator Jordan Allen, MSW, LSW, and Celebrate Us! Facilitator Michael Eblin, MSW, LSW, are all smiles at Syntero’s Pride Fundraiser at The Candle Lab in Grandview.

Syntero offers comprehensive services specifically designed for the LGBTQ+ community, provided by culturally competent staff members. During Pride Month, Syntero celebrated the LGBTQ+ community by holding a fun event at The Candle Lab to provide an opportunity for community members to meet program coordinators while making candles. Twenty percent of all proceeds supported Syntero’s LGBTQ+ programs. Later in the month, Syntero’s Family Pride Mixer provided an opportunity for Syntero staff, program participants, potential program participants and their families to socialize and support one another.

Syntero provides an array of LGBTQ+ services, including individual counseling, couples and family counseling, sexual health education and yoga. Additionally, the Celebrate You! group for adolescents and the Celebrate Us! group for families and friends of members of the LGBTQ+ community offer LGBTQ+ community members and supporters an opportunity to socialize while addressing issues in a supportive, safe environment to lead to positive outcomes and healthy/balanced lifestyles and choices for dealing with identity issues.
