“Emerging from despair: Overcoming mental health challenges after loss.”
Losing someone – or something – we love is one of life’s most stressful events. While feelings of denial, shock, sadness, guilt, and anger are considered healthy responses, not everyone is able to cope with these responses in healthy ways. If left unresolved, intense grief can lead to mental health issues such as major depression, OCD and anxiety, eating disorders, and addictions. You won’t want to miss this heartfelt program as our honored speakers share their journey from devastating despair to awe-inspiring resilience!
All guests of the Women’s Gathering will receive a special lotus flower necklace to take home as a remembrance of the day. The lotus was chosen for its meaning of new beginnings:
“The lotus flower symbolizes beauty, purity, spiritual enlightenment and rebirth. It rises from the darkness of the muddy waters and turns into a beautiful flower. This process of coming into existence is also considered a symbol of spiritual enlightenment and the expansion of one’s soul. It is symbolic for “we can make the best of our environment and rise above”.
Thank you to Positively Me Boutique for securing this beautiful necklace and joining us on our journey toward mental health and wellness!

Bring a NEW stuffed animal for a child at Rogers
All guests are invited to bring a NEW stuffed animal for a child going through treatment at Rogers. Coming to an unknown place can be frightening for some children. A soft, furry friend to hold onto can make all the difference in helping Rogers’ youngest patients feel safe and secure while they become familiar with their new environment.
