A Death in the Family

Rudy HayesThe staff and peers of Perry Wellness Center were saddened today to learn of the death of Mr. Rudy Hayes, long-time supporter and friend. Rudy's Happy Patch Market is named for this gentleman, and his history with Stuart Perry goes back decades. 

Rudy Hayes helped organize and document the Journey for Life which Stuart undertook in 1999 as a mental health advocacy walk from Americus, Georgia to Chicago, Illinois. Mr. Rudy was there every step of the way, and he later captured the story of this remarkable journey in a book, "Stuart Perry's Journey for Life."

In his professional career, Mr. Rudy was a journalist and served as the editor of the Americus Times-Recorder for many years. He was also a tireless mental health advocate. In addition to his work with Stuart Perry, he served for several years on the board of Middle Flint Behavioral HealthCare.

In recent years, his health failed him, but he still dropped by Perry Wellness Center on occasion, along with his wife Charlene. In addition to all of us at the center, he is mourned by his wife, children, and grandchildren.

We will miss you, Rudy. Godspeed!



Peer Orientation a Time for New Friendships

KatrinaBecoming a peer for the first time at Perry Wellness Center must feel like the first day of school. People are strangers at first, the routine is unfamiliar, and one’s insecurities tend to be high.

But the newest client at Perry Wellness Center, Katrina, received a warm welcome upon her recent arrival on campus. With her ready smile, Katrina offered the assurance of her friendship to other peers and staff.

Only a few minutes after arriving for her first day, Katrina found herself at a table filled with other peers. She was asked a range of questions – Where did she come from? What were her living arrangements? What were her plans at Perry Wellness Center? Without hesitation, Katrina shared information with her new peer group and joined in the activities of the day.

The success of Katrina’s introduction to Perry Wellness Center was due to a combination of factors, from her own friendly demeanor to the respect and interest of peers. Staff preparations also made a difference, as they prepared for everything from her orientation to her specific dietary needs.

“It is great that our peers took time and made the effort to welcome this new peer to our campus,” Stuart Perry noted. “And Katrina has a smile that will assure her of good times and increased friendship at Perry Wellness Center.”

Welcome, Katrina!

In the photo above, new peer Katrina takes a break after breakfast to work on an art project.

Americus Civitan Club Makes Outstanding Donation

Civitan coolerWhat began as an invitation for Perry Wellness Center founder Stuart Perry to speak to a local civic group became an opportunity for both generosity and gratitude, and ended with the delivery and installation of a state-of-the-art commercial cooler/freezer.

Of Crowder Peas and Exercise:

Peer Building Muscles with Campus Chores


Tommy w. crowder peasEven at a wellness program, peer Tommy Green stands out for his commitment to physical activity and overall good health. For some time he has been a part of the structured weight-lifting and other exercise routines at Perry Wellness Center, with a focus upon weight loss and body building. In the process, he has lost over 20 pounds.

But Tommy still has physical fitness goals. “One day, I would like to have abs,” he says with a smile. “I think I have one forming, and I am eager to see more!”

One way Tommy has learned to increase his physical activity is by tackling each job assignment as a workout exercise. Whenever PWC founder Stuart Perry needs someone to work on a project requiring muscle strength, he knows he can call on Tommy, who is eager to help out.

The campus’ current devotion to pea and bean shelling has presented one such opportunity. As customer demand rises for locally grown fresh peas and beans, the rotary pea shellers run up to six hours a day. Normally, four wagons are used to deliver a steady supply of bushel bags to the sheller. But Tommy bypasses the wagons, preferring to carry the peas and butter bean bags under his own weight.

Known as “macho” by many staff and peers, Tommy Green is earning his nickname these summer months and improving his health in the process.

In the photo above, Tommy Green’s muscles get a workout as he transports four bushel bags of crowder peas for morning shelling.

Avoiding Sports Injuries & Re-injuries

Broken armPhysical fitness is important for participants in a recovery program such as Perry Wellness Center. To achieve optimal fitness, peers stay involved in physical activity throughout the day, including exercise and team sports.

However, too vigorous exercise can sometimes either cause health problems or slow down recovery from them. For example, aggressive team play at volleyball can lead to falls and other accidents. Or someone engaging in strenuous exercise can put too much stress on an existing injury.

To prevent problems, Perry Wellness Center staff monitor all physical activities, encourage moderate and safe workouts, and offer advice to peers to help them avoid medical issues.

For example, peer Carlton Tookes recently suffered a broken right arm. He now sports a colorful cast on the injured limb. Staff counselor Noah Cochran has reviewed proper protection and physical limitations of the arm while it is healing. He particularly reminded Carlton not to over-exert the arm.

“Healing does take time,” Noah notes. “We all need to be aware of proper protection for such injuries. I am sure that Carlton will be back in volleyball competition in the coming weeks.”

In the photo above, Noah Cochran autographs Carlton Tookes’ new arm cast.
