Valor Court
The Summit County Valor Court, established in 2013, was developed due to the recognition that many of our veterans return to the community with serious trauma, both mental and physical, which may lead to their incarceration. Valor court provides access to programs, treatment, and interaction with mentors in a collaborative way to enhance a veteran’s chances of success.

Mental Health Court
The Akron Municipal Mental Health Court is the first of its kind in Ohio and one of a handful in the United States. The Mental Health Court was formed, in part, as a response to the overwhelming numbers of mentally ill offenders being seen by the Akron Municipal Court. This program is a collaborative effort between the Summit County ADM Board, Community Support Services, and the Akron Municipal Court. Honorable Judge Annalisa S. Williams, will provide more information about this program.

MAIN LIBRARY, 60 SOUTH HIGH ST., AKRON

Meditation
Stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system through sitting meditation (zazen), walking meditation (kinhin), and stress reduction meditation (visualization). The parasympathetic nervous system controls the “rest and digest” response in the body which is a system that slows the heart and breathing rate, and causes blood vessels to dilate thus improving blood flow. For those planning to attend this session, wearing loose or stretchy clothing is recommended. Instructor: Simone Richardson, Librarian, Business & Government Division.
