Warner Memorial Presbyterian - Free Depression Screening

Warner Memorial Presbyterian Church Announces

Free Depression Screening

Kensington, MD - October 8, 2009

Thursday, October 8, 2009, is National Depression Screening Day. Depression Screenings are being offered throughout the country using the materials and structure of the Mental Health Screenings organization. Pastoral Counseling and Care Ministries is offering a Depression Screening on October 8th at Warner Memorial Presbyterian Church at 10123 Connecticut Avenue in Kensington. DROP IN any time between 10am and 6pm on Thursday, October 8. If you have questions, please contact Kathy Kohl at 1-888-626-2273, box 3.

Participants will complete a written screening questionnaire, view educational materials, pick up pamphlets and brochures, discuss questionnaire results with a licensed counselor, and receive guidance toward finding help and resources when needed.

Depression and anxiety can be debilitating, life-threatening illnesses. But often people suffering with these conditions do not know they have an illness that can be treated. If they do know that these conditions can be treated, they may not know where to turn for such help. Because of the economic downturn in this country, there has been an increase in the number of people experiencing these mood disorders.

The symptoms of depression may include lack of energy, changes in eating or sleep patterns, sadness, irritability, and a sense of hopelessness. Anxiety is fear about future uncertainties and may be accompanied by feelings of panic. If you or someone you know may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression, this is an opportunity to clarify your concerns and receive education and guidance on how to get help.

The Press Contact for this event is Kathy Kohl at 1-888-626-2273, box 3.

Adam's Belle:
A Memoir of Love Without Bounds
Thursday, October 15

Adam’s Belle is a roller coaster ride through the life of the late Isabel Washington Powell. This first-person narrative charges through Isabel’s life from her early childhood days as a baby “drama queen” in her hometown of Savannah, Georgia to her stage debut kicking up her heels at Harlem’s famous Cotton Club in the 1920’s. Isabel soon meets a real life “Prince Charming” who happens to be the nation’s most eligible bachelor – Adam Clayton Powell Jr. The two fall madly in love and plan to share their “heaven on earth” for the rest of their lives.

With much pain and agony, Isabel learns that not all fairy tales have happy endings. Ultimately, she develops the strength to celebrate herself and even overcome breast cancer on her nearly 100-year journey to becoming a true living legend.

About the Author:
As a native of Los Angeles, California, Joyce Burnett has always been interested in music, entertainment and fitness. She knew little, however, about the dynamic sounds and lifestyle of the Harlem Renaissance until she ran head on into Isabel Washington Powell. From the moment they met, Joyce was enthralled by the vivid pictures Belle painted of her life.

Joyce worked closely with Belle for almost ten years to record this incredible story. Belle was very pleased with the early draft of Adam’s Belle, but sadly, she passed away before her story was published.

Joyce holds degrees from Wesleyan University, Johns Hopkins, and American University.

Take Steps with a Purpose:
A Walk About America for Cancer Research
Wednesday, October 21

In the greatest journey of his life, Eric M. Latham literally walked across the United States to raise money for cancer research. Along the way, he met thousands of people who shared their amazing stories with him. Now, he's sharing those stories with the world.

Take Steps with a Purpose: A Walk About America for Cancer Research is an inspirational story about tragedy and triumph, about life and death, about hope, courage, and strength. But most of all, it's a story about people and how they're affected by cancer. Full-color photos and nearly 200 pages detail the faces of America. Take Steps with a Purpose records each challenging step Eric took to fight for a cause that he believes in.

Born in D.C. and native to Rockville, Eric recently moved back to the area. He is also the author of Entitled to a Nation.
