Daniel’s Place volunteer Alex Venegas is facilitating the envisioning, creation, and establishment of a virtual community and social media presence run by members of Daniel’s Place.
“The idea is to possibly create a virtual support network available to all young adults experiencing a mental health issue.” said Venegas. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, Venegas currently is a Research Associate at the UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs . “The members of Daniel’s Place understand the power of the digital age and want to connect with other young adults to share their experience, strength, and hope. “
“We are fortunate to have Alex volunteer her time and talent for this exciting project.” said Kimberly Low, Program Manager at Daniel’s Place. “I’m excited about the possibilities a virtual Daniel’s Place community presents for bringing recovery services to more young adults experiencing a mental health issue. A diagnosis is not a destiny!”
