The weight of our program is influenced by the training provided by Wellness Management & Recovery (WMR). Castle members Julie Juergens, Beth Couch, and Castle Staff members Greg Darling and Bill Schwochow attended a four (4)-day co-facilitator training by WMR at Solutions in Lebanon. Since then, we have been busy establishing WMR at the Recovery Center and birthing our first WMR group, known as “The Pilots.”
So what can we predict for the Recovery Center? Our next WMR group will begin meeting within the next month. This group will be made up of some members but will mostly of referred individuals. Diane Ivan and Bill Schwochow have been talking with other community mental health agencies in the county about the Recovery Center. Our goal is to provide three (3) new groups within the next year.

National Day of Prayer
The gathering of approximately 100 listened to the inspiring messages of Centerville’s mayor -the honorable Mark Kingseed and a well-respected regional advocate, Renee Kopache of the Hamilton County Board of Mental Health. Mayor Kingseed spoke of the responsibility of communities to embrace and celebrate the diversity of all citizens, especially those who need some support and live with mental illness; bringing their passions, skills and talents to their neighbors. Renee spoke of her own struggles to battle stigma and to be recognized as a person who lives with mental illness, not defined as a mentally ill person.
