Introduction to Recovery International
Friday, May 21, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Recovery International is a non-profit organization that has provided self-help mental health programs in community settings for over 80 years. We all know that mental health issues are on the rise. We may see it on the news, hear about it from our neighbors or from one of the members of our congregation. Maybe we are feeling a little bit more anxious or depressed or notice one of our family members is behaving differently. This presentation, led by congregation member Lisa Garcia, will introduce the various mental health services available through Recovery International. Not only will Lisa discuss the services that are available for adults, but she will also introduce a new program called Power Your Mind: Tools to Build Resilience for Teens and Young Adults.
Power Your Mind is a workbook that uses graphic novel panels to illustrate situations and engage youth in learning ways to respond to daily stressors and situations. The program offers life skills to control anger, alleviate anxiety, develop, and maintain peaceful relationships, and establish realistic expectations and beliefs.
Please be sure to join us for this important presentation to learn about resources the whole family can use! The zoom link will be provided in the Temple’s weekly emails.
