NEWS & EVENTS

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Why focus on mental health for an entire month? Because millions of Americans face the reality of living with mental health issues. This month, follow our Facebook and Instagram (@christiancenterofparkcity) feeds
to learn how we at CCPC and others in our community are fighting stigmas, educating the public, and providing support for individuals and families affected by mental illness.
Unfortunately, a significant number of Summit County residents impacted by mental health issues are severely limited in their search for treatment. Recognizing this vital need, CCPC invested in a comprehensive, onsite counseling center with 7 professionally trained mental health counselors currently, in order to meet the critical mental health needs of our local population.
Thanks to generous funding from area resident Karen Marriott and Intermountain Park City Hospital, CCPC can provide counseling scholarships to those in financial need. CCPC has also collaborated with Karen and the
Park City Community Foundation to hire a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse (APRN). This APRN will be hosted at CCPC and provide unmet medication management services to this vulnerable population. Mental health counseling is just one example of how CCPC is serving the community, seeking to meet people at their point of need
regardless of race, gender, or religious affiliation.
We are seeking Summit County teens aged 13-18 with mental health challenges to participate in the NAMI Progression program, which will be held at CCPC in May 2019  in the group room. Progression is a free six-week class for teens with mental health conditions. In a safe, supportive, environment teens meet teens with mental health conditions and learn all about mental illness including causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, recovery, and tips for leading a full, enriching life with a mental health condition.
