PARSIPPANY — On Wednesday December 12, at 2:00 p.m., a special community event to foster mental health recovery, “Wellness Through Creative Expression,” will be held at the Morris Wellness Center in Parsippany.
The free event, sponsored by the Collaborative Support Programs of N.J. and Life Center Stage, will feature music, arts, poetry and drumming, as part of an effort to explore the role that creative expression has in helping to deal with mental illness and addictions.
The expressive arts have many health benefits that support mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Singing and drumming promote relaxation, a sense of group identity and a feeling of belonging, providing an opportunity for immediate engagement in a music experience.
At the event, Wellness Center members will perform as a group their original song “Love Each Other,“ and will participate in poetry, a guided drum circle, an art exhibit and more.
The Wellness Center is seeking for visual artists and poets to participate in the event, to showcase their artwork and read their poetry related to mental health or addiction. For consideration, please submit online by clicking here before December 5.
The special event will be held at the Morris Wellness Center, 1259 Route 46, Building 4, Door 4D in Parsippany. It is located in the Troy Hills Office Plaza on Route 46 East, just past the Empire Diner.
