Fall Market Fills with Smiles (and Fresh Produce)

Lucy PerryThe slight drop in temperatures and anticipation of cooler weather continues to excite staff, peers, and customers at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market. Our seasonal pumpkins are already selling and fresh fall produce and plants are available. The smiles of customers tell us that they are ready for autumn – and for our home grown, farm-to-table fall vegetables.

As always, Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry is ready for the seasonal change. “I am all about the cooler weather,” he says with emphasis. “We have fought the hot summer and increased watering for our produce and the campus. We do need some rain, but the cooler weather is a step in the right direction!”

One repeat customer, Lucy Perry of Americus, recently stopped by for blueberries, shelled peas, and a hanging floral basket. After she completed her shopping, a market assistant carried her produce and basket to her vehicle. Let’s hear it for customer service! Let’s hear it for FALL!

In the photo above, Lucy Perry holds a market bag about to be filled with fresh blueberries. 

Group Leader Shares Message of Diversity, Self-Acceptance

Boykin groupDuring a recent peer discussion, certified peer specialist (CPS) Rev. Ronald Boykin brought his insights to a timely topic. Many individuals with behavioral health problems feel marginalized, stigmatized, and even discriminated against. Often these feelings are due to public misunderstanding about the nature of mental illness. Additionally, many of the peers participating in the Perry Wellness Center recovery program are racial minorities, a fact that can further contribute to a sense of “otherness” in society. Whatever the causes, Rev. Boykin feel that individuals must take responsibility for their own feelings and celebrate their cultures and identities.

A Sign of the Season

Mr. PumpkinAt Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, we are happy to report that a bright orange, rotund V.I.P. is now available to receive visitors during the fall holiday season.

Known as Mr. Kelly Pumpkin (or “Mr. Pumpkin,” for short), the unusually large pumpkin has taken a place of honor among its lesser peers on the market grounds. We are inviting families to stop by and take a picture of the kids with Mr. Pumpkin.

He will be on the grounds until Thanksgiving -- or until he is purchased. Our market is open 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays. The market is located at 302 East Furlow Street, Americus.

Mr. Pumpkin is pictured above with his namesake, Kelly Jansen, our culinary chief – who may have visions of pumpkin pies in the cafeteria dancing in his head!

Stuart Perry Speaks to Local DAR

DARSince he became a mental health advocate almost two decades ago, Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart has spoken to a variety of civic, church, governmental, and mental health groups across the nation. His message has consistently been the promotion of recovery for people with mental illness or substance abuse. By reducing the stigma surrounding mental illness and providing a “face” for the disorder, Stuart has increased public understanding and support.

Last week he made his most recent advocacy appearance when he was the featured speaker at the local Council of Safety Chapter, DAR (Daughter of the American Revolution) last week. In his remarks, Stuart shared the history of Perry Wellness Center and its focus as a peer-led wellness and recovery program for its 77 peers.

“To have the support of the DAR is important in our work,” Stuart noted. He believes in strong relationships and partnerships in the community among a variety of service organizations.

In the above photo with Stuart are DAR members, left to right: Leila Case, vice regent; Nancy Gaston, chaplain; Phyllis Tucker, secretary; Nancy Hayes, regent; and Gay Sheppard, outgoing regent.

Our thanks to the local DAR chapter for its interest and support.

GSWC Nursing Students Tour Campus

Students and banana treeA group of four senior nursing students are once again visiting Perry Wellness Center as part of their mental health rotation. Four students from Georgia Southwestern State University recently attended group sessions and established personal contacts with several peers at the center. The experience gives students a firsthand look at how people with mental illness cope and recover with treatment and support.

When not studying, the students found out that the center’s campus is a great place for exploration. During a recent break, the students visited numerous sites on campus, including the array of walking paths, fountains, ponds, garden structures, and greenhouses.

After stopping by Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, the four students began their walk down the hill on which the market is sited. As they walked, they discovered Perry Wellness Center’s own banana tree. Excited with that discovery, they proceeded to the Helping Hand” fountain and pool designed by Jeff Williams. But the young women kept returning to comments on the discovery of the tropical fruit in south Georgia.

“I have never seen bananas as they grow on a tree,” said Charlene Jeanbaptiste, a nursing student who is also an Army veteran. “I bet those two bunches of bananas are exciting for visitors. We are happy with our discovery!”

This group of four students are just part of a total of 16 students who have visited Perry Wellness Center in the past few weeks. Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry is delighted to host the group, saying, “We welcome our nursing students to our campus. We hope that our activity will lure future nurses to join our team and realize the growing need for mental health services.”

In the photo above, a group of nursing students pause to check the growth of bananas on this tropical tree. From left are: Samantha Joubert, from Gwinnett County, studying pediatrics; Charlene Jeanbaptiste, from Chicago, studying psychology; Brigitte Locke, from Taylor County, studying labor and delivery; and Ciara James, from Americus, studying trauma nursing.
