A note from our Executive Director
Summer is in full swing and with the hot, sunny days there comes the opportunity to get out and enjoy every moment. However, stress and anxiety can be present too – especially for families with children out of school.
We’re here to help!
Recently, we’ve been focused on the important role nature can have on our physical and mental health. We’ve provided resources and ideas on how to bring even a few minutes of nature into your life – lunch in the park, the sounds of a rainstorm to your desk. We have also begun our summer programming for children in partnership with other community organizations.
I’m excited to share this information with you in today’s edition.
As always, The Family Counseling Center is thankful to our community, our partners, our staff, and you for your support throughout the past year. Your advocacy and donations help us greatly as we continue to fulfill our mission of providing superior care.
Nature’s Impact on Mental Health and Wellbeing
Did you know that even a few minutes outside can have a positive effect on your mood and your body? We are lucky to be surrounded by a rich, abundant, and accessible natural environment. Recently, on Facebook and our website, we provided resources for our community to get out and enjoy a little bit of the outdoors.
A Look at Our Summer Youth Program
Throughout the month of July, The Family Counseling Center’s Children and Family Support Services will be hosting a Social-Emotional Learning Camp for children and young adults on a weekly basis. The camp will focus on social skills, problem solving, and coping skills.
