The Art of Saying Thank You

Thank you notesEven before its move to its East Furlow Street location, Perry Wellness Center received many donations for peers. With growth of the peer population has come an increase in donations as well. One special type of donation is gently used clothing.

Individual donations are common, but Pam Craig Sims of Tazewell, Georgia, has united her friends and church community to join in sending large bags of gently used, washed clothes to Perry Wellness Center. Peers are allowed to select donated items for themselves and for family members. These donations have been very welcome to many peers who have limited income.

To show the thanks of the peer community, Essie Fulkes, a peer specialist at the center, has implemented a “thank you” plan. Peers are required to write individual notes of thanks to donors if they choose to accept donations for their personal use.

“We need to make this a learning experience for our peers,” Miss Essie explains. “As the clothing donations increase, we cannot miss the opportunity to instruct our family about composing and personally writing a short note to kind donors.” Although she is very busy herself with ensuring timely transportation of peers to medical appointments, she has committed to make time to help peers with this new learning experience.

“It will be fun to know that maybe time with our peers will lead to a positive habit of appreciating the good in others,” she explains. Feeling and expressing gratitude are important parts of mind/body wellness, a fact that Essie and other know well.

Stuart Perry, PWC founder and CEO is certainly one who knows the value of giving thanks. He has also written Pam Craig Sims a personal letter of thanks for her generous donations. He also encourages other individuals in Tazewell and the entire area to consider the option of making donations to Perry Wellness Center.

As always, we offer our thanks and gratitude to our readers, customers, and other area citizens for their ongoing support of Perry Wellness Center.

In the above photo, Essie Fulkes monitors the writing of “thank you” notes by grateful peers. Around the table are: Essie Fulkes, Laurie Slaton, Katrina Howard, James Barron, James Mahones, Michelle Maness, Nicole Jackson, and James Foster.

Southland Academy Helps with Record Donation

Southland Academy donationFollowers of Perry Wellness Center know about the ambitious donation project undertaken by the area recovery center’s Kaylon Holt. Kaylon, a young peer at the center, has established a goal of donating at least one million soda can tabs or “pop tops” to the Ronald McDonald House in Columbus, Georgia. The aluminum tabs can be redeemed for cash and go toward needed purchases at the non-profit institution, which serves parents of seriously ill children receiving medical services.

Friday Reflections

Atlanta visit 3On this rainy Friday, we were thinking back to some of the last few weeks' activities at Perry Wellness Center. We come across some additional photos from our recent visit to Atlanta, where Stuart Perry received special recognition from state representative Mike Cheokas.

Members of the PWC entourage also visited briefly with Georgia’s mental health commissioner, Frank Berry, who also visited the Perry Wellness Center campus recently. Commissioner Berry is pictured on the far right in the top photo, above, as he talks with Stuart.

Another photo below features staff and peers at the State capitol during the recent tribute to Stuart.

We’re looking forward to an exciting spring and summer. Enjoy the rain, then stop by and see us soon!

Albany Police Officer Visit PWC Campus

Albany CIT

 As most of our readers know, we participate regularly in training for the Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) program that brings law enforcement officers together with mental health professionals. Police and sheriffs officers, among others, learn ways to handle mental health crisis situations in their community. From learning how to assess the degree of risk in a situation to improving communication skills with an individual in crisis, officers gain practical skills that help them in their work and provide more humane interventions for many vulnerable individuals.

Last week we told you that Stuart Perry had received a statewide award on behalf of Perry Wellness Center, which was named the best training site location in the state at the Georgia Crisis Intervention convention. Over the last few years, our campus has been a training site for a large number of law enforcement officers throughout the region.

On April 12, we completed just the latest in a series of CIT training days – this time with representatives from the Albany, Georgia Police Department. As usual, Rhonda Hubbard provided a tour of the campus, and officers had the opportunity to interact with peers and share food and fellowship along with training. Sue Marlowe, representing the National Alliance on Mental Illness, accompanied the group.

Pictured above are representatives from the Albany Police Department, along with Perry Wellness Center staff and peers. Our thanks to the APD for its commitment to good community mental health!

Color Abounds at Spring Market

Spring market 1As spring progresses, so does the activity level at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market. The recent delivery of flowers from several area vendors provides an infusion of new colors and plant varieties on campus.

Phyllis Smith, our dedicated market manager, commented: “Rudy’s Happy Patch Market is exciting! The increase of customer traffic is wonderful. With the coming season of vegetables, we look for another successful season.”

Spring market 2As long-term weather predications are not always known for their accuracy, precautions are routinely taken to protect and maintain healthy plants throughout the campus. Protecting the plants is a matter of environmental concern and love of natural beauty. It is also meant to protect one of our non-profit center’s major sources of income and a critical part of our wellness program.

“Our spring and summer market are a great part of our revenue for the year,” PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry explained. “Also, as the vegetables arrive, we can use these fresh products in our wellness program (the Whole Health Action Management or W.H.A.M. plan). Our peers and staff eat more healthily.”

Spring market 3Stuart and his fellow staff members invite visitors to stop by the market on the Perry Wellness Center campus at 302 East Furlow Street. “We welcome customers and assure them that they will ‘leave with a smile,’” he shared.

As the photos above attest, plants are healthy and in vivid color throughout the Perry Wellness Center campus.
