Special Guest: Dr. Melissa Deuter
will speak from 9:45-10:30 AM in the Parish Hall
This year, we welcome Dr. Melissa Deuter, board certified psychiatrist and author of the book, STUCK in the Sick Role: How Illness Becomes An Identity. She is the Medial Director for Sigma Mental Health Urgent Care in Stone Oak. She specialized in the care of teens, young adults and their families. She has a special interest in the unique mental health needs of emerging adults (18-25 year olds).
St. George Episcopal holds Mental Health Awareness Sunday in an effort to fight stigma surrounding mental illness by raising awareness and providing an education component for those who have been given a mental illness diagnosis and for those who care for loved ones with mental illness diagnosis.
Dr. Deuter also writes a weekly blog on a variety of mental health and parenting related topics. You can read her blog by following this link: http://www. melissadeuter.com/news/ .

Praise God’s blessings! The Lord has provided new opportunities for our Haitian partnership this past spring. Next month, Keith Earle and two representatives from Texas Water Mission will be heading to St. Benoit with Fr. Goursse to asses the current water situation on the campus at St. Benoit. In partnership with Texas Water Mission, we hope to come up with a quality and useful water solution for our partners. Please pray for God’s vision and discernment on this trip as the team works together during this time. The team is set to head out on July 10 and we look forward to continuing to build the bonds of friendship as well as work on this solution with our partners. If you desire to contribute towards the work of this trip, you may do so by praying for us and offering your voice to God in support. If you wish to support further with your own gifts, you may donate by check, cash or electronically byclicking here. Please designate “Haiti Outreach” in the memo or locate the giving category electronically. If you have any questions, please contact Keith Earle for more details. Thank you for your prayers during this time.
