Six Eastside "Mental Health and Wellness" Events

 Nami-Eastside presents an Educational Forum...
“RESILIENCE- A FORGOTTEN STRENGTH”
Guest: Greg Schell, M.Ed.,
Director of Washington State Fathers Network
Tuesday, January 17, 2012, 7 PM - 9 PM
*Evergreen Hospital, Suite Tan 100, 12303 NE 130th Lane, Kirkland, WA 98034

For over 30 years Washington State Father's Network Director Greg Schell, M.Ed has been a teacher, family trainer, researcher and principal, working with families and young people. After a review of the research on dads having children with disability, Greg will address “resilience”, one of the amazing strengths all humans possess to deal with the challenges of life. Certain behaviors can increase our ability to manage the difficulties we encounter more successfully. Too much stress and we forgot that we have this incredible attribute. Please come willing to discuss some of your own resilient successes, as most likely you have something everyone can learn from. Join us! This event is FREE and open to EVERYONE!   PHONE: 425-885-NAMI (6264) WEB: http://www.nami-eastside.org/   E-MAIL: INFO@NAMI-EASTSIDE.ORG
