NAMI Central Middlesex and The Edinburg Center will sponsor a NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program specifically for families of persons diagnosed with serious mental illness.  The 12-week series of classes will start in Lexington on Thursday, September 18,  from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.

The course will cover information about schizophrenia, the mood disorders (bipolar disorder and major depression), panic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder; coping skills such as handling crisis and relapse; basic information about medications; listening and communication techniques; problem-solving skills; recovery and rehabilitation; and self-care around worry and stress.  The curriculum has been written by an experienced family member mental health professional and the course will be taught by NAMI Massachusetts family member volunteers who have taken intensive training as course instructors.

The Family to Family course balances basic psychoeducation and skill-training with emotional support, self-care and empowerment.  We hope families with relatives who have a serious mental illness will take advantage of this unique opportunity.
The course is designed specifically for parents, siblings, spouses, teen-age and adult children and significant others of persons with severe and persistent mental illness.  The course is not appropriate for individuals who themselves suffer from one of the major mental illnesses.

The NAMI Family-to-Family Education Course is free for participants.  Pre-Registration is required.

HOW NOT TO APPLY TO COLLEGE
Avoiding Big Mistakes in the
College Selection and Admissions Process

Mark Montgomery, a national college admissions expert, offers his advice on how to avoid the pitfalls and pain of applying to college.  

Lexington Depot
13 Depot Square, Lexington, MA
$10/person or $25 per family

To Register:  http://GreatCollegeAdvice.com/Lexington

Most people take a haphazard approach to visiting schools, examining statistics, consulting rankings, and comparing campus amenities as they consider which colleges might be the right fit.  Similarly, during the application process, students seldom think strategically as they fill out forms, write essays, plan for interviews, and communicate with admissions offices.

But the investment in higher education is huge:  hundreds of thousands of dollars, huge student loans, and at least four years of hard work.  Shouldn’t the process be less scattershot and more systematic?  Why is it so hard to be rational in this process?

Filled with good humor, a healthy dose of reality, and concrete examples of real students who avoided these mistakes, the presentation addresses these crucial questions and more:

  • How do you calculate “return on investment” in higher education?
  • What is the right way to shop for colleges?
  • What are the five keys to admission?
  • How can you develop a personal strategy for success?
  • How do you preserve sanity in your household?

Dr. Mark Montgomery earned his BA at Dartmouth College and his Masters and Doctoral degrees at Tufts University. He has been an instructor at Harvard and a consultant at Yale.  He specializes in demystifying the ways in which colleges recruit and admit students. His views and advice have appeared in US News & World Report, Money, USA Today, Forbes, The Apple Daily (Hong Kong), The Huffington Post, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and The Denver Post. He also writes a popular blog on university admission at GreatCollegeAdvice.com.

Montgomery Educational Consulting is a full service educational firm that assists students and their families as they select and apply to the best and most appropriate universities.  With offices in New Jersey, Hong Kong, and Colorado, Mark works one-on-one with students to guide them in their choices in secondary school, to articulate which educational environments lead to academic success, and identify how personal and family needs, preferences, and ambitions can be combined to help them pick the right universities—and get in.

LexFUN! is once again proud to host its special Halloween Parade for little ones on Sat. Oct. 25th!

Every year, Elmo leads our tiniest Lexingtonians on a parade walk around the Battle Green, as they show off their costumes and make noise with their kidde instruments. This is a long-standing tradition in our Town and provides a safe and welcoming environment for our youngest Lexingtonians to celebrate Halloween in their costumes in a family-friendly atmosphere. 

To this end, LexFUN! encourages parents to use their good judgment in selecting costumes. LexFUN! promotes a safe and inclusive environment for the parade, one that respects social, generational, and cultural differences. We encourage costumes that are family friendly (not scary to our little ones) and portray positive images to our children.

In addition to bringing your little tyke in costume, also please bring two other things to the parade: 

(1) Bring your childs favorite noise making instrument to help Elmo on his march around the Battle Green. 

(2) Bring a couple cans of tuna fish to donate to our Lexington Food Pantry drive. It is a great teaching opportunity to explain the importance of giving back to our community. 

The parade is free and open to the public. You do not need to be a LexFUN! member to enjoy the fun. We are looking forward to another great parade this year!!!

See you on Sat. Oct. 25th at 9:45 am in front of the Visitors Center!
