This workshop will be on Sunday, May 23, from 2-4 p.m. It will focus on building skills for integrating Gratitude Practices in everyday life while coping with mental illness. It will also provide opportunities to practice these skills while discussing and reflecting with fellow attendees. Participants will learn how the use of new approaches can help to decrease symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress while increasing self-confidence and well-being. This workshop is designed for both caregivers and people who experience mental illness. It will be co-facilitated by Joan Sugarman and Sarah Freudberg. Joan has an MFT and has worked for many years as a mental health therapist with both individuals and families. Sarah is a teacher and a former Family-to-Family facilitator. We will open the meeting early to admit participants before beginning promptly at 2 p.m.
