MCHS to offer Behavioral Health Community Conference
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Changing your daily thoughts and actions can boost happiness, reduce depression and decrease suicidal thoughts. Christine Padesky, an internationally-acclaimed clinical psychologist from Huntington, CA, will discuss seven practical skills to improve your mood and happiness, as part of Marshfield Clinic Health System’s annual Behavioral Health Community Conference.
These skills are research-tested, simple to learn and each can be mastered in a few weeks. Padesky shows how to use these skills and a way to measure your moods so you can track your progress over time. Whether you or people you love struggle with particular moods or just want to increase general well-being, this presentation is for you.
The conference will be held April 23, 6:30-8 p.m., at Marshfield Medical Center’s Melvin R. Laird Center for Medical Research.
Attendees can participate in a Q&A with Padesky after the presentation, “7 Simple Practical Skills to Boost Happiness and Reduce Depression & Suicide.”
Pre-registration is required as seating is limited. To register, call 715-387-9081. Registration deadline is April 10.
This conference is possible thanks to generous supporters of Mike’s Run, a five-mile run and two-mile walk, promoting mental health awareness. The 2020 Mike’s Run will be held at Steve J. Miller Shelter on June 20, in Marshfield. For more information, visit www.marshfieldclinic.org/mikesrun
