In case you didn’t know, May is Mental Health Awareness Month! We at T&SR have been busy finding ways to honor the month and our participants. We have had multiple groups focused on mental health, including learning about Tardive Dyskinesia, the ability to be happy while having a mental health diagnosis and ways to assist our mental health using movement and exercise. We will also be showing off our participant’s talents in an art show at our Bridgeville office, which is inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, who is believed to have had a mental health diagnosis. The word of the month is RESILIENCE, as our participants are the most resilient individuals around.
Click here to read a special Mental Health Awareness Month newsletter. It showcases some of our participant’s recovery stories. Please enjoy reading it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t include every participant’s story, but it does represent the resiliency of all of our folks, as each and every one of them are more than survivor’s—they have bounced back from challenges that most people can only imagine.
Thank you for reading it and be well,
Social Rehabilitation Coordinator
