VOICES 10th Annual Always Remember Gala

VOICES 10th Annual Always Remember Gala was held on April 12 at the New York Athletic Club in New York City. Once again, the event was a wonderful success thanks to the support of so many. As always, there was a strong sense of community among the nearly 300 attendees, who came together to reflect, remember and support our work.

We were thrilled to have Mike Greenberg, ESPN's award-winning journalist and broadcaster, serve as our Emcee. As a lifelong New Yorker, Mike set the tone for the evening of reflection and optimism. He shared his heartfelt personal story about the loss of a long-time friend on 9/11, combined with his hope for the future conveyed through his signature humor and wit. More.

 

A force for change: Coping with grief through activism and advocacy

Every tragedy, big or small, leaves behind victims and loved ones whose lives are inalterably changed. In some cases, survivors find themselves driven to become activists or advocates, finding meaning in the tragedy by fighting whatever caused it. There are many examples making headlines all over the country.

Chris Hurst was an evening news anchor at WDBJ in Roanoke, Virginia, when his girlfriend, Alison Parker, a reporter, and her cameraman, Adam Ward, were shot and killed during a live interview one morning in August 2015. More.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia

Quality sleep is essential to wellness, especially for those coping with physical and/or psychological conditions. Sleep disturbance is common among those living with trauma, grief, and medical conditions, and is prevalent in the 9/11 Community. Insomnia may lead to increased distress and exacerbate coexisting conditions, such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, alcohol dependence, or hypnotic medication dependence.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is considered a first-line intervention for primary insomnia by the National Institute of Health, with recent research supporting its effectiveness. More.
