Managing Stress to Improve Health & Wellness
Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way.

Resources for Sandy Hook Tragedy

Resources for Sandy Hook Tragedy
This weekend we had an opportunity to spend two days in Sandy Hook and offer our support. As you can imagine, the community is still in shock over the tragic loss of the young children and teachers who heroically protected their classrooms. Many families we spoke with asked about resources and guidance in talking with their children about the event. We have also heard from many of our members who report that the tragedy brings back memories of their own personal loss on 9/11. More.

Resources for Recovery

Superstorm Sandy Resources

I hope this note finds you and your family safe following the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who tragically lost loved ones and those whose homes were destroyed or damaged by fire and flooding.Thanks to the tireless efforts of Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Christie, Governor Malloy and Governor Cuomo, much progress has been made in coordinating with local, state and federal agencies in the recovery effort.

As happened after the attacks on 9/11, thousands of rescue workers and volunteers have traveled from around the country to provide assistance to those in need. It has been heartwarming to witness once again the strength of the human spirit and to hear remarkable stories of bravery, caring and compassion. More.
