Thursdays with NAMI – 7 pm -February 3, 2022

Josh’s Hope Foundation was founded after the death of Joshua McCabe Bailey, who was murdered in 2008 by a group of young men in Chapel Hill, NC. Josh, who was 20, had lifelong mental health conditions and learning disabilities, and developed substance use disorder in the last two years of his life. He was also a loving, creative, joyful and adventurous young man who had hopes and dreams for the future. This week, on Thursdays with NAMI, Josh’s father, Steven Bailey, will discuss what his team is doing today to bridge the gaps and make a difference for young adults like Josh.

We will also talk with Tripp Jarvis, program director at Josh’s Hope and a resident artist at Liberty Arts Studio and Foundry in Durham. Tripp’s sculptures include bold, cast-iron works as big as 15 feet tall; his work has been exhibited in Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, and across the U.S. His art reflects not only a vast imagination but his personal journey of recovery.

Josh’s Hope Foundation provides opportunities for young adults to learn woodworking, metalwork, fishing, use of carpentry tools, and more. Special programs are available for individuals with mental health and substance use challenges who are involved with the Orange County Detention Center.

Thursdays with NAMI starts at 7pm and is free and open to all. Join us via Facebook Live or click here to register to participate via Zoom and to view the schedule for future sessions
