WRAP Comes to NAMI of PA Montgomery County
NAMI of PA Montgomery County will be hosting WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) training sessions. WRAP was developed by Mary Ellen Copeland and is a powerful tool in helping people manage their lives and take personal responsibility for their recovery. WRAP can help you live your best life by reducing stress, promoting self-awareness and crisis planning.
Join us for a weekend of fun learning and self discovery!
A global project aimed at enhancing the conversation about eliminating stigma while calling out the importance of scientific insights about mental illness. Through public engagement, the program will encourage people to demonstrate how art, in its many forms, can help transcend mental illness and lead to a better understanding of them.
Janssen’s hope is to empower individuals to become champions of science by offering education about the biological basis of mental illness, with the goal of increasing acceptance, fostering compassion, and combating discrimination once and for all.
This project reflects Janssen’s and Johnson & Johnson Innovation’s goal to continue to help people and communities all over the world end stigma and discrimination related to medical conditions where stigma prevents people from seeking the attention, support, and care required to manage their condition.
Share an original artistic expression about mental illness and the importance of ending stigma. You can submit any form of art you choose – a painting or drawing, video, illustration, piece of writing, etc. As many submissions as possible will be posted. Click on the Champions of Science logo to submit your artwork today!
Peyton Heart Day Event
The Peyton Heart Project’s mission is to help raise global awareness about suicide and bullying and to help end the stigma surrounding mental health. The project is named after Peyton James, a 13-year-old boy who, in the fall of 2014, died by suicide after years of being bullied. www.thepeytonheartproject.org
