Wishing you some pumpkin spice + everything nice!!!
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), World Mental Health Day is observed on October 10th every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing effort in support of mental health. One of this year's themes is talking about how our nation deals with workplace issues such as stress, anxiety and mental illness. It is important that if anyone is struggling with a mental health issue and/or stress at work that they are able to tell their manager or boss. Unfortunately, many people are too scared or worried about how they may be viewed. If you are a manager or boss it is important to hear your employees AND offer assistance to them. We also, all need to work to eliminate any stigmas related to mental health issues.
This day provides an opportunity for those working on mental health issues to talk about their work and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for everyone worldwide.

Tween Social Support Group Ages 11-13
4-week, once a week support group to meet on Tuesdays. Expected start date is October 24.
Have you noticed self-esteem issues with your “tween”? My goal for this group is to enhance feelings of self-worth in your tween. Starting with themselves, this group will assist your tween in developing and maintaining interpersonal relationships. Together we will learn how to manage stress in a healthy way, support one another and improve our self-esteem, all while making new friends.
The use of art, cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-focused strategies will be used to facilitate growth in your tween. Your child will draw on sources of support that are both familiar and newly learned within the group to promote a more positive self-image.
