Let's Talk About the Elephant in the Room: Mental Illness
with Shelby Cronkite Suzanne Fox, Westbrook Adult Education
This summer Ellsworth, Gorham and Westbrook Adult Ed programs are partnering with The Yellow Tulip Project, a youth driven non-profit organization based out of Portland, Maine to bring conversations about mental health to you! The YTP focuses on smashing the stigma surrounding mental illness and building communities of people who realize that hope happens when youth and community leaders work together. Mental Illness is that silent elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about but everyone should. Let's TALK About Mental Health provides a safe and interactive space to learn more about mental health and what we as community members can do to reduce the stigma that surrounds the topic. This three session course is designed to help community members develop useful skills for talking to young adults about these issues. The course will be divided into three distinct modules with plenty of time for discussion and reflection. Module One: Talk Saves Lives: (this is the AFSP’s important program that helps people recognize the signs for suicide prevention), Module Two: Facing Stigma: Creating Solutions, a dialogue and discussion on how to reduce stigma using the photos from the I Am More: Facing Stigma photo exhibit, Module Three: A panel discussion with our student ambassadors and mental health professionals. The course will be offered on ZOOM in August prior to the beginning of the 2020-2021 academic year so parents and supporting adults have the language and tools to support their child or student before the beginning of the school year. You will receive and email when you register and then an email will follow with ZOOM access information. Suppport and a practice session will be provided for those new to ZOOM. If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving a message at 207.664.7110 and we will return your call.

Meditation: Emotional Healing
with DIANA MINUTELLI, Noble Adult & Community Education
We go through life dealing with a lot of emotions. Some emotions are dealt with in the moment while others are simply swept under the rug. Emotions can build up over time, and we so often get overwhelmed with feelings that we just don’t know how to deal with them. In this class, you will be gently guided through meditation to go deep within and reconnect with yourself to help release past holdings and stresses.
