Morning Groups an Important Learning Tool

Morning groupsPerry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry is a firm believer in the power of information. Much of the schedule at the wellness and recovery center focuses on the teaching of employment, health, and life skills.

Stuart likes to drop in on various groups to offer information or just to listen. Recently, Stuart visited a morning presentation by lead counselor Noah Cochran. Dialogue was brisk as information was shared.

“I enjoy group sessions,” Stuart explained. “The discussion with Noah and peers is increasing, to an ongoing dialogue of questions and answers. Once, some of these peers were frightened to interact in groups, but the discussion is now beneficial for all in attendance.”

The primary focus of the morning’s discussion was increased awareness of others’ needs and appropriate ways to provide help. Practicing empathy is a significant activity for individuals in recovery.

“This is a good topic and requires little learning,” Stuart noted. “It should be an automatic event to help other peers and friends.”

Noah’s leadership of the group took place after a morning of exercise leadership, which included a rousing game of basketball. He only had time to change his shirt before moving to classroom training in mental illness and substance abuse recovery.

As Noah headed off to the showers, Stuart offered praise for the dedicated staffer.

“Noah does a good job, and his vocabulary and knowledge about the plights of peers make a real difference,” Stuart enthused. “Some have even suggested that Noah produce an audiotape for our local advocates.”

Tomatoes 101

Tomato PrepApproximately two years ago, Rudy’s Happy Patch Market adopted the tomato as its year-around vegetable of choice. Customer demand and increased availability of different tomato varieties have led to increased on-campus planting and harvesting of the popular crop.

“We have had an increase in the requests for different varieties of tomatoes,” says Phyllis Smith, market manager. “Now that most peers choose to plant and harvest tomatoes in their raised bed, we have increased product.”

With increased production levels, tomatoes are also a topic of education on everything from recipes to canning and freezing techniques. Peer will soon be offered instructional classes in healthy and creative preparation of fresh vegetables.

Safe preservation of tomatoes is also an important training topic. Even with an abundance of tossed salads, winter soups, and other meals prepared with tomatoes in the campus lunchroom, tomatoes overflow the market. Excess tomatoes are prepared, dated, and stored in freezers located throughout the campus.

But the most enjoyable educational topic is surely meal preparation. Says Miss Phyllis, At the market and the instructional classes, we will probably offer more preparation and menus for at-home preparation. We are developing tasty menu recipes for our peers and the new kitchen in Happy Patch Market.” Say tuned for more developments!

PWC Peer Makes New Transition

Mike Harper 2016From the early days of the recovery center previously known as the Tom Perry Peer Center, Mike Harper has been friends with Stuart Perry, CEO and founder of what is now Perry Wellness Center. For many years, he resided in Ellaville, Georgia. During his time there, Mike suffered from depression and loneliness, which he fought with often unhealthy solutions and avoidance of contact with friends and neighbors. Receiving treatment made all the difference.

GSW Nursing Students Learn at PWC

GSW nurses 2016Almost every semester, senior nursing students at Georgia Southwestern State University spend on-site learning time at Perry Wellness Center. The association with peers, coupled with observing “real life” behavioral health services, makes for a valuable learning experience.

This semester, two unique students visited the center for days of interaction and sharing with peers and staff. They are Slitra Layman and Rand Pressley. Although they have very different backgrounds, they share a passion for nursing.

"Pokemon Go" Offers Peer Benefits

Pokemon GoDepending upon your age and interests, you may be interested yourself in an activity that has swept the gaming world off its feet. Yes, we’re talking about Pokemon Go!

Several peers and staff at Perry Wellness Center have begun playing the somewhat addictive game on their smartphones. Staff member Amber Rechtorvic has no complaints, saying: “The phenomenon is good. First, it excites some of our peers with the color and screen activity. With their excitement, they will travel throughout our campus, to Rees Park, and soon downtown to the Windsor. When they arrive at these sites, they read the history on each displayed historic sign. It is a true learning experience for them.”

Participating peers also gain physical activity as part of their wellness plans. They learn historical information, and they even receive safety prompts from accompanying staff regarding traffic and other potential risks.

Amber continues, “Our peers are learning about local history and electronics while we encourage physical activity. This is a win-win for our group I am sure this learning activity will grow. I look forward to the days that several of our peers will compete for points on the Pokemon discovery.”

In the photo above, Chris Strickland quietly studies his new Pokemon program on his smartphone.
