How To Talk With Someone Who Is Struggling
The Mental Health and Wellness Ministry was excited to partner with Stephen Ministry to bring Beth Pfitzenmaeir, Director of Clinical Training for SouthLight Healthcare to speak on the topic of "How To Talk With Someone Who Is Struggling." Beth shared suggestions for how to recognize the need for, prepare for, and have a difficult conversation with a loved one or colleague about substance use and mental health. WMPC is excited to partner with SouthLight for our Major Mission this year!
Aging Well provides a forum where participants can approach some of the most pressing questions which arise as we age. While for many, aging may reflexively signify fears of loss or the unknown, here in community at White Memorial, there is space to discuss both our joys and our concerns, sorrows and unanticipated growth. Experts like psychologists, physicians, pastors and laypeople will share what they have learned about the aging process.
