It is with heavy hearts and much sadness that The Castle reports the loss of one of their members, who was also an employee. She was a certified peer support specialist who worked with her peers to assist them in their recovery. She has been a valued assets for the staff and members of The Castle. The following is her obituary:
Beth Ann G. unexpectedly went to be with the Lord on February 1st, 2018. She was a vivacious and fun-loving woman who absolutely adored animals and …making people laugh. She loved to read and one of her wishes was to visit Paris, France, which she was able to do with her sister last year. Beth gave her life to Jesus and we are sure she is bringing sunshine and joy to all of heaven. She is survived by her only child, Autumn G.
A Memorial Service in memory of Beth will be held on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 5:30 p.m., at City Church, 138 S. Wilkinson St, Dayton, with Pastor Micah Hill officiating.
The staff of The Castle will be attending and will provide limited transportation to the service for members wishing to attend.

The Castle will be displaying masks created during last fall’s Mental Illness Awareness Event at the Centerville Art Gallery within the Police Department (155 W. Spring Valley Road in Centerville).
The gallery show is open to the public any time (day or night) through the month of August and is coordinated by the Centerville Arts Commission.
This display was featured in the Summer 2013 edition of the Centerville Town Crier. Look for the television spot on Centerville Reports.
Our Community Gathers At The Castle
The Dayton community gathers at the Castle to recommit to de-mystifying and de-stigmatizing mental illness around a theme of “Changing Attitudes…Changing Lives”
The event included an art show – “The Masks”. Indivuals from the Castle, We Care Arts and Kettering Behavioral Medicine Center crafted masks to portray the message “You never know who is behind the mask of mental illness”.
Ryan Peirson, MD , Director of Community Psychiatry of Wright State University and Medical Director for the Montgomery County Alchohol, Drug Addicton and Mental Health Services Board delivered an inspiring key note address.
We also heard personal stories of strength and resolve from several poeple living with mental illness.
The event concluded with a prayer vigil led by our faith based community partners and a community grill out.
