Highland-Clarksburg Hospital, Inc. reached out to many area summer programs including Project Isaac, Elkins YMCA Kids Camp, and Energy Express. Highland-Clarksburg Hospital offered a very important topic of discussion trending with today’s children and youth. The topic of the summer was focusing on ‘Stress & Conflict’, the topic many deal with each and every day.
Children have more stress and conflict these days and if they know how to handle their feelings and emotions, it will result in a positive outcome. Other topics that did arise out of the sessions were topics such as bullying and how to handle it, the topic of fitting in, and where to go for help.
The program was a great success. Highland-Clarksburg’s dedicated therapists joined in the efforts in reaching out and assisted in the group reading/lessons for the day. The booklets that were handed out to each child (‘Stress and Conflict’) consisted of coloring pages, crayons, word search, and short stories.
“We talked about how to control your anger and dealing with conflict resolution. Our mascot “BEAR” also joined in each session bringing smiles, school supplies, and laughter to the day,” stated Marketing Director Shannon Putnam.
Highland-Clarksburg Hospital, Inc. works with area schools, many local and outer lying organizations, and gives volunteer time while supporting positive mental health. The hospital staff is looking forward to next summer and hopes to build the summer outreach program each year.
