Mental Health Awareness Week is recognized May  18 – 24.  In this video, Bob McGuire, Executive Director of CP Nassau is joined by Sharon Rothstein, Director of the Adult Day Programs at the Agency.  Both extend sincere thanks to our Psychology and Social Work Staff who have done an amazing job of helping participants, staff and family members in these challenging times.  Sharon also mentions the resources and help available for those who want to access it.  The caring and kindness of all at the Agency is certainly helping to help get us though these stressful days.

The Mental Health Foundation chose to focus on the power and potential of kindness as their theme for this special week. Their organization’s research shows that protecting mental health is going to be central to coping with and recovering from the coronavirus pandemic – with the psychological and social impacts likely to outlast the physical symptoms of the virus.

The Mental Health Foundation has chosen kindness because of its singular ability to unlock our shared humanity.  According to the MHF,” kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health. Wisdom from every culture across history recognizes that kindness is something that all human beings need to experience and practice to be fully alive.”

THANK YOU TO ALL AT CP NASSAU WHO WORK HARD AND SPREAD KINDNESS ON A DAILY BASIS, NO MATTER THE WEEK OR THE CHALLENGE.
