Rogers sites celebrate National Hospital Week, Mental Health Awareness Month05/21/21 11:50:am
May is an extra special time at Rogers Behavioral Health, as we recognize National Hospital Week (May 9-15) and Mental Health Awareness Month.
To celebrate, Rogers sites from across the country participated in many activities, including:
- The NAMI Oshkosh 5K for Mental Health & Suicide Awareness. Amanda Puhl, Appleton’s community outreach representative, is seen above with “NAMI Nate” at the event.
- Fun, food, and team activities in West Allis. Staff formed a “Residential Rainbow” to showcase their teamwork, creativity, and pride.
- A food truck event in Hinsdale, which also served as a “thank you” to our referents for their support during the pandemic. Seen above are Cindy Cole, LMFT, LPC, director of operations; Monica Roberts, LCPC, program director at Symetria Recovery; and Christopher Lowden, MD, psychiatrist.
- A week of events in San Diego, including a virtual scavenger hunt, silly socks, staff fun facts, a pajama day with breakfast treats, and a taco lunch stand, as seen above.
- An online presentation conducted through NAMI Minnesota. Michelle Young, LPC, LPCC, clinical supervisor, and Alison Kleppin, LPC, a therapist, from the St. Paul clinic spoke on the treatment of OCD and how families, partners, and friends can provide support.
- The Silver Lake team (seen above) recognized Mental Health Awareness Month by discussing related topics. One staff member said the month "means bringing awareness that even if you're not struggling...it's ok to get a tune-up and see a therapist."
