Hey everyone! This Wednesday, June 1st and every Wednesday until September 28th you can come check out The Camas Farmer’s Market. Yummy produce, sweets and treats, music and many other fun finds. The market is open 3-7 and this is such a great community time you should check out. Listen in as I chat with Tina Eifert, program coordinator, about this year’s market!
I’m wrapping up my interviews for the Mental Health Awareness month of May. I had the wonderful opportunity of touring the Children’s Center and learning about what a great resource that offers specialized outpatient mental health counseling and psychiatric services for children and adolescents. They also offer services for the uninsured and underinsured. Hear about a great fundraiser luncheon with author Patrick Kennedy as the special keynote speaker on June 17th at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, WA. I hope one of my interviews this month has helped educate, break the stigma and start the dialogue about mental health. You are not alone. There are resources and help for you. Let’s be a community that cares and supports all.
Have you ever had a time in your life where you struggled with a life event happening or something from your past that kept resurfacing again and again? Have you thought of seeking out a therapist but worried about a stigma that might go with that or didn’t quite know where to start the search to find the right therapist? If you didn’t catch my interview last week, May is Mental Health Awareness month, and I am featuring some interviews this month bringing light to different aspects of mental health. This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Sandra Hunt Bero who is a local therapist specializing in child, adolescent and women’s issues. Listen in as we chat about mental health and how it can be a great source of help in times of need. Please watch and share. Together we can educate, break the stigma about mental health and start the dialogue.
I can’t wait for you to meet this Camas resident, Heather Radu who is the founder and owner of Forever Changed International. Heather has a orphanage in Guatemala called Dorie’s Promise. On May 24th from 6-8 there will be a Care Concert held at Camas Meadows to help support the orphans at Dorie’s Promise. Families are encouraged to attend. There will be great music, auction items and a time to come together as a community to support this great organization. You can get tickets at the door. Let’s join in to support and bring love to communities around the world. Enjoy the pictures at the end of our interview from my service trip to Guatemala in January. See you May 24th!
Please watch this video and share it. Let’s start talking about mental illness. Did you know 1 in 5 Americans will be affected by a mental health condition in their lifetime and every American is affected or impacted through their friends and family? Take action today to help others as we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care.
