Pasadena United Methodist Church

will host a COMMUNITY-WIDE EVENT:

“Skills That Really Work”

DATE: May 6, 2012     TIME: 3:00—5:00

Free of charge for all!

 

            Every day in the news we see the incredible amount of stress people deal with.  Weather disasters, terrorism, acts of violence, and their impact on every person is so apparent. Children and adults struggle with the anxiety and feelings of sadness generated by these issues.  Pasadena United Methodist Church extends to our entire community the opportunity to learn coping skills that really work.  Our mission is to care for the individuals and families living in our community. 

            With great pride we present an afternoon to help our entire community and all are welcome. Bring a friend or neighbor of any age. Come learn about anxiety, depression/suicide, substance abuse and how to deal effectively with these issues.  Learn to be an individual/family that knows how to develop a resilient, “bounce back” style of coping with stress.  Learn to enhance your feelings of positive self-esteem and how to deescalate anger when it arises between individuals.  Learn about all these topics and more in a relaxed, warm environment.  Ask the questions you have always wished to know about stress and mental wellness!!  We are really grateful to have Arundel Psychological Associates as our community resource.
