  1. Hello. I am in awe of the work being done by our youth. Our youth board members at M.P.N.
    especially.
    Montana’s Peer Network is partnering with L.A.Cs to promote peer to peer services, trama
    informed care, self help and wrap-around services peer to peer at the National Night Out in
    Deer Lodge, Mt. Aug. 7th at 5pm. We hope to show our partnership with youth M.O.V.E. and
    suicide prevention awareness also. M.P.N. members, L.A.C.s come see. Burgers and dogs!
