misc_none 7:00 PM  -  9:30 PM FAMILY TO FAMILY PROGRAM Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Janet Hodges   781-761-5287   jhodges@edinburgcenter.org
   

NAMI Central Middlesex and The Edinburg Center will sponsor a NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program specifically for families of persons diagnosed with serious mental illness.  The 12-week series of classes will start in Lexington on Thursday, September 18,  from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.

The course will cover information about schizophrenia, the mood disorders (bipolar disorder and major depression), panic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder; coping skills such as handling crisis and relapse; basic information about medications; listening and communication techniques; problem-solving skills; recovery and rehabilitation; and self-care around worry and stress.  The curriculum has been written by an experienced family member mental health professional and the course will be taught by NAMI Massachusetts family member volunteers who have taken intensive training as course instructors.

The Family to Family course balances basic psychoeducation and skill-training with emotional support, self-care and empowerment.  We hope families with relatives who have a serious mental illness will take advantage of this unique opportunity.
The course is designed specifically for parents, siblings, spouses, teen-age and adult children and significant others of persons with severe and persistent mental illness.  The course is not appropriate for individuals who themselves suffer from one of the major mental illnesses.

The NAMI Family-to-Family Education Course is free for participants.  Pre-Registration is required.

SUSTAINABLE MIDDLESEX MEETING:  PRICING CARBON

At 9:30 on Saturday December 6th in Cary Memorial Library, Sustainable Middlesex will advance to a new level which could have national implications.

 Sustainable Middlesex has been a conduit for local grassroots organizations to learn from each other about tested ideas and programs that promote awareness of climate change and sustainable solutions. We have had insightful and inspiring speakers enhancing our knowledge of initiatives and solutions to the challenges brought about by increasing greenhouse gases.

 Over the last year we have gained an appreciation and focus on the need to put a price on carbon (carbon tax) as perhaps the best single initiative to address global climate disruption.

In part as a result of a Sustainable Middlesex forum with state representatives and legislators, State Senator Mike Barrett and Representative Tom Conroy drafted legislation to put a price on carbon.

 Now it is time for us to collaborate with other groups that share this perspective and develop the strategy and organization to see that it is passed. We are fortunate to have Senator Barrett as a passionate, intelligent and competent leader to guide us in this effort. Join us in discussing and developing the plan and process to see that it gets done in Massachusetts.

 When it is passed in Massachusetts, it will be a catalyst for the country and a model for the rest of the world.

 Agenda for Saturday’s meeting

1.  Update from Mike Barrett on status of the legislation – implication of Baker’s win
2.   Discuss Strategy to pass a price on carbon legislation
3.   Discuss organization and implementation of strategy
4.   Mark Sandeen will present how a few citizens were able to get Lexington to install solar panels on all suitable town buildings
 5.   Sharing information on individual town initiatives to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainability.

 The meeting which is in collaboration with Climate XChange and Citizens Climate Lobby will be held in the downstairs large meeting room at Cary Library. Doors will be open at 9:15 for networking and coffee.The agenda will start promptly at 9:30, concluding at 11a.m.

This Martin Luther King Day, be a part of history! Live the great civil rights leader’s vision of community service to those in need. Organized by the MLK Day CommUNITY Commemoration group, part of the Lexington Town Celebrations Committee, this year’s events will feature many opportunities for helping. Last year, more than 200 volunteers of all ages served more than 1,000 people in Lexington and surrounding communities. Let’s double that this year! Sign up yourself or with your friends and family for one or more of the following activities:

• The Annual Unity Walk and Presentations. March together from the Battle Green monument starting at 11:00 a.m., to Grace Chapel. Then, stay for presentations by a community member who has fulfilled the legacy of Dr. King’s service, for a musical performance, and for our featured guest, Lexington resident and National Poetry Slam Champion Regie O’Hare Gibson.
• Community Day at the Waltham YMCA. Treat homeless families from Lexington, Bedford, and Waltham to a day of sports, activities, learning programs, and refreshments.
• Valentine’s Card-Making. Make beautiful hand-made cards for veterans and others.
• Lunch with Seniors. Gather and converse about the legacy of Dr. King with residents of the three Lexington Senior Villages.
• Clothing, Food, and Goods-donations to Under-privileged Families. Organize and distribute essential goods for families in need. Donations are distributed to organizations that serve Lexington and surrounding communities, including COMPASS For Kids, Lexington Food Pantry, Cradles to Crayons, and more.
• Birthday Wishes. Prepare materials for children whose families cannot afford to give them birthday parties. Volunteers will work at the Cotting School in Lexington.
Admission to the program is free and all are welcome to attend any or all of the MLK Day of Service events. Donations can be made through the Town Celebrations Committee MLK Day Fund. Please make checks payable to the Town of Lexington, with MLK Celebration in the memo line, and mail to Town of Lexington, 1625 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA 02420.
