At this event the relationship between self-esteem and unhealthy relationship dynamics was explored. There was a reflective workshop to develop self awareness and empower the audience to have the confidence and tools to take action and make effective changes. Open discussions about various mental health topics made the event interactive and informative. Tips on how to find a therapist was also discussed.
Soul Saving Station Church in Saratoga Springs New York State, welcomed Beverley and her informative presentations and talks on mental health & well-being, contributing to their 1st Annual Retreat dedicated to raising awareness and celebrating the Mind, Body, Spirit three part one entity concept.
