Local Health Care Organizations Partner To Offer Behavioral Health Series
(May 6, 2015 - Carroll Township, Pa.)
Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) and Southwestern Pennsylvania Human Services, Inc. (SPHS) are partnering to offer a three-part mental wellness series that can be an invaluable resource for anyone who finds their lives spinning out of control.
The free sessions, which will be held in MVH's Anthony M. Lombardi Education Conference Center, begin on Thursday, June 4, with "Turning Tragedy Into Triumph: A Survivor's Perspective." The program will feature Earl Granville, a retired Army staff sergeant and wounded warrior who advocates suicide prevention. Mr. Granville and his twin brother, Joseph, were brothers in arms too. In 2007, Earl deployed with the 1/109th Infantry Regiment to Afghanistan where he lost his left leg to a roadside bomb. Joseph took his brother's injury, and the news that his own deployment to Iraq was rescinded, very hard. In 2010, Joseph took his own life.
"The signs were there. I just didn't realize they were signs until he left," said Earl Granville.
The program will begin at 6 p.m. Parking is free and light refreshments will be served.
The series will continue on Thursday, Sept. 17, when Oscar Urrea, M.D., a psychiatrist affiliated with MVH and Psychiatric Care Systems, will discuss "When It's Time To Seek Help: A Clinical Perspective."
The third program will be held on Thursday, Nov. 5. "Resources and Support: A Community Perspective" will feature a panel discussion. Panelists include: Mark Freado, M.A., Reclaiming Youth International; along with Ravindranath Kolli, M.D., and Cheryld Emala, MSW, LCSW, from SPHS Behavioral Health.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend one or all of the sessions. For reservations, call 724-258-1333.
