Depression Workshop

JOIN KELLY DENNIS FOR A FREE SEMINAR

Depression is a disorder that can strike anyone at any age. It strikes across all barriers, making its sufferers miserable and robbing them of joy and satisfaction. Join Kelly F. Dennis MS LPC and Millersville Community Church for a discussion of the various types of depression and how to deal with them. Kelly is a Licensed Professional Counselor with an office in Millersville. She has experience in helping individuals and families work through mental health issues including, eating disorders, anxiety, & depression.

Kelly incorporates a faith-based perspective in her clinical work, using an approach that combines genetic, cognitive, social, and cultural factors in assessing behavior. Participants will learn about various forms of depression, including Major Depressive Disorder and Persistent Depressive Disorder. During our time together, we’ll learn how to moderate the effects of depression through mindfulness meditation, loving kindness, cognitive therapy, and breathing.

Relief from depression begins with understanding its causes and resulting behaviors. Equip yourself to cope with depression, either in yourself or in someone you care about. Our workshop will convene at Grace Campus on Saturday, September 29 at 9 am. Gather for a light breakfast in the Family Life Center before making your way to the Sanctuary for Kelly’s presentation. The workshop should wrap up around 11:00am. Admission is free, but we are asking that you register in advance by contacting Bruce Heydt at bruceheydt@gracemillersville.org, or by calling 717-872-4571.
