Don't forget that the month of MAY is mental health awareness month. Spread the word and educate the world!
Thanks to the wonderful support of Lorain County's General Health District for our new Healthy Vending Machine. We were given a Bronze Award for MAKING THE HEALTHY CHOICE THE EASY CHOICE. We are looking forward to our next meeting with the General Health District to show off our Healthy Vending. I believe we qualify for a Silver Snack Smart Award for all our healthy options in our machine. So look out for updates on this photo because we are stepping it up at the Gathering Hope House, maybe they will even give us a Gold Snack Smart Award.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! Gathering Hope Radio Show had a great show Sunday, we went around the Hope house and asked our members a few questions on what brings them hope each day? Many of our members responded and we had several individuals call up at the station to talk about HOPE and what it means them, take a listen!
Gathering Hope House had the great honor and privilege to speak to the LCCC Police Academy Friday to discuss Mental Health Awareness and talk about the great things we do at the Gathering Hope House. We had a great discussion with these young and future police officers. It was wonderful to see their interest in mental health and to hear their questions and concerns with handling individuals with a mental health diagnosis. Thank you LCCC Police Academy for showing so much interest in our work and care for individuals with suffering with mental illness.
