Tips for Healthy Thanksgiving

Tips for a Healthy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving comes once a year, so why not go ahead and splurge? Gaining weight during the holiday season has become a national pastime. Year after year, most of us pack on at least a pound (some gain more) during the holidays - and keep the extra weight permanently.
Experts say Thanksgiving does not have to sabotage your weight. With a little know-how, you can satisfy your desire for traditional favorites and still enjoy a guilt-free Thanksgiving feast. After all, being stuffed is only a good idea if you are a turkey!

Stigma Free

Stigma Free - What Does It Mean?

The fear of stigma too often keeps people who are struggling with mental illness from seeking the help they need.  Towns across New Jersey are standing up to the shame associated with mental illness by declaring themselves "stigma-free."

The Morris County Stigma-Free Communities Initiative is a county-wide program which aims to eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness and substance use disorders.

We are dedicated to raising awareness of these illnesses by creating an environment where affected individuals are supported in their efforts to achieve wellness and recovery.

Hope One
