Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce to co-host Retail Marijuana Forum
ACK Mental is a community skatepark event to raise awareness about issues like underage drinking, addiction, and the stigmas surrounding both mental health and skateboarding. Skateboarding is for people of all ages, genders, economic status, and ethnic backgrounds. Mental illness and addiction don’t discriminate either, yet stigma clings to both. Last year over 50 skaters of all ages, as well as scooter and BMX riders, families, and fans, gathered at the skatepark to celebrate and have fun, all while breaking the stigma around mental health and substance misuse. This year, to adhere to safety guidelines around Covid-19, we are doing a virtual social media event in September. NCTV will be collecting video clips from YOU and putting them together in a fantastic video that we will live-stream at 5:00 p.m. on October 18, 2020, on Fairwinds Facebook and NCTV YouTube.
