Wellness Wednesday

Revere Community C.A.R.E. is sponsoring Wellness Wednesday on March 15, 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m., at Revere High School. There will be three, 30-minute breakout sessions at 6:30, 7:10 and 7:50 p.m. Topics will include “stress less” mental health and wellness, dangerous apps, human trafficking, domestic/dating violence, self-defense/yoga, and opioids/fentanyl.

The movie “Angst” will be shown twice at 5:30 and 7 p.m., with a representative from Greenleaf Family Center available to answer questions. This film removes the stigma of anxiety and shows how symptoms can be managed. It weaves in personal stories with information from the experts.

The Smyth School of Irish Dance will perform at 6 p.m. and World Champion Martial Arts will give a demo from 6:30-7:30 p.m. followed by interactive kicking/punching drills.

The Richfield Branch Library will have a pop-up library and also offer several activities for kids. Attendees may interact with therapy animals and/or get their face painted. Mental health agencies will have booths including National Alliance on Mental Illness, the Summit County Board of Health (who will have information about vaping), and Bonfire, a mental health provider that offers free coaching services for students. Food, beverages and desserts will be available for purchase and the Kona Ice Truck will be onsite.

More details and a schedule for this free event will be posted on the Revere website and at the event. For additional information, call Karen at 330-659-4750. ∞
