Free seminars give people hope and help
Positive signs of economic recovery do exist, even here in the Prescott area. However, we would be fooling ourselves if we didn't also recognize that the stress has taken a severe toll on many. And, for some, the challenges just keep coming.
West Yavapai Guidance Clinic and Yavapai Regional Medical Center are hosting a series of three workshops designed to address today's unique environment. The seminars will all be held at the Adult Center in Prescott.
The first - "Finding the Hope Past Despair" - will take place from 10:30 a.m. to noon, Monday, March 21. Mary Anne Halvorson, RN, from West Yavapai Guidance Clinic will teach attendees how to manage the unique stressors in today's environment, such as financial worries, change, grief and loss, and how to put the positive back into their lives.
"Tools Tested and Proven To Reduce Your Stress" by Kristen Taubman, LCSW, Director of Adult Outpatient Clinical Operations, West Yavapai Guidance Clinic, will take place 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5. Attendees of this class will learn about the connection between stress and total health. They will take away valuable techniques that will help reduce stress and improve overall well-being.
"Help Your Loved One Take The First Step" by Timothy L. Davis, MC, NCC, LPC, Chief Clinical Officer, West Yavapai Guidance Clinic will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 20. Attendees will learn where to go for assistance and how to address the topic of treatment when someone they know needs help for anxiety, depression, alcohol or drug issues.
Seating is limited, so pre-registration is needed. To reserve your place, call the Adult Center at 778-3000. Select one or attend all three.
The intent behind this YRMC and WYGC community outreach partnership is to provide information and support so our community can be as healthy as possible - and emotional wellness is indeed a part of total health.
