Wellness in Action: Summer Series Scheduled at Safe Haven

A series of wellness in action programs are scheduled each Tuesday at Safe Haven Drop-In Center in Colusa beginning June 18.

The sessions will continue from 10:30 -11:30 a.m. each Tuesday thereafter through August 13.

According to peer support specialist Valerie Stirling who along with Mental Health Services Act coordinator Dereck Parks oversees the day to day operation of the center, the series will focus on healthy living and positive coping skills.

A number of the Colusa County Behavioral Health staff members will lead the groups.

Alexis Becerra will lead the June 18 session which addresses wellness recovery action plans.

Other sessions in the series are as follows:

June 25 – Out and About (socialization) with Emily Clark.

July 2 – Positive Thinking with Kim Perry

July 9 – Stress Reduction and Meditation with Debbi Naylor

July 16 – Keeping on the Sunnyside of Life (positive affirmations) with Beth Hines

July 23 – Finding your ZZZZ’s (good sleeping hygiene) with Gemma Velazquez

August 6 – Positive Self Care Routines with Sue Bowen

August 13 – Find your Rhythm (music) with Colusa County Behavioral Health Staff.

“More and more we have seen the benefit of programs being offered at the Center,” said Parks.

“Our Behavioral Health staff have recognized the need for more outreach and conducting programs at the center and have graciously stepped up to fill that need,” he said.

Parks said the Safe Haven participants very much want to be a part of the community outreach and be positive members of the community.
