  • Friday, December 12: “Youth At Risk”
    will present a panel discussion from folks in our Palo Alto community who are offering direct services to youth.  We have experienced the sad fact of a number of young people taking their lives, and we all have concerns.  We need to hear from organizations and schools about how we can support them in their cause for the healthy emotional lives of our youth. Bring your ideas and questions about this timely issue.

This will be the last Senior Chat. It will be followed by a luncheon honoring Coordinator Rev. Dona Smith-Powers. See details here.

  • Friday, November 14: “Mental Illness in our Midst”
    Most of us have encountered mental illness among friends, family, or from personal experience.  NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) was founded in 1978 to provide support, education, and advocacy.  They have been successful in moving toward reducing the stigma of mental illness.  We will be pleased to welcome staff and volunteer persons to our session to share their insights and stories.  Also, we will explore the mental health issues that affect older people. Cindy, Marianne and Hanny will be joining us.
