FY 2013 - Genesis Behavioral Health
Partners in Health:
Genesis Behavioral Health & Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center
At Genesis Behavioral Health, we value the many partnerships
we have in the Lakes Region. Together, we are able to utilize our
collective – and limited - resources more efficiently and effectively
while making a difference for children and families. This past year,
we were fortunate to forge
have had something difficult, even tragic, happen to them. The children
who recover the quickest often have found their own way of tapping
into a source of strength or finding something that nurtures their
resiliency. Many times, children report they have found this strength
through contact with nature. An 11-year-old says “When I am feeling
really upset, I go out back, into the woods, and find a
tree to sit under. There I find the space and quiet to
sort things out, and calm myself down.”
Unfortunately, for many children with mental illness,
participation in such activities is limited. Families
a partnership with Prescott Farm
Environmental Education Center (PFEEC) in Laconia.
Recreation activities, such as the summer and vacation camps
offered at PFEEC, have multiple benefits for children with mental
illness. These include a reduction of symptoms; increased selfconfidence and self-esteem; increased communication, trust and
cooperation skills; improved social skills and peer relationships;
increased ability to manage stressors and anxiety; enhanced feelings
of well-being; and increased problem-solving skills. Regular
recreational activities can reduce the severity of many mental health
disorders, allowing participants to achieve positive outcomes.
In particular, spending time outdoors and in nature is invaluable
for our children. In fact, it is a natural stress reliever. At Genesis
Behavioral Health, we work with many children who
may be struggling to meet their child’s basic needs,
and may not have the financial ability or the time
to participate in recreational activities. PFEEC
recognized that need, and received a grant from
Meredith Village Savings Bank Fund to provide
children receiving services from Genesis Behavioral
Health with scholarships to attend camp. Sarah
Dunham, Executive Director of PFEEC, remarked,
“We are so grateful to MVSB for working with
us to provide Genesis kids with a summer camp
experience at Prescott Farm!” The generosity of
MVSB and PFEEC gave 10 children an enriching
experience that improved not only their mental
health, but their physical health as well by getting
them outside to play and learn. A 5-year-old says it best - “When I am
outside, everything is just so beautiful! It makes my heart happy.”

Success Story:
A Healthy Choices, Healthy Changes Story Shared With Genesis Behavioral Health
On my 28th birthday, I weighed 345 lbs and probably more because
that was the last recorded weight at my doctor’s visit and it had been
a while since I had seen him. I was in a deep depression and walking
just a hundred feet seemed like miles in my eyes, because I was in
so much pain. I really didn’t care about anything. My boyfriend
approached the subject of my weight by using my health as a reason
to lose it. I started thinking about it.
One day I decided to walk to the library and found they had an
entire section on health and fitness. I took a workout DVD home
and watched it all the way through. I thought to myself “they want
Getting compliments from
people who noticed my
weight loss pushed me
to work harder! I started
noticing that I had less
pain, and I could move
more swiftly. I started
walking around the block
and bicycling. Once I had
a good workout routine, I
started working on my diet.
I tried to figure out portion
control and I stopped
eating when I felt satisfied.
I read everything. I learned
about good carbohydrates
and bad carbohydrates
and lean proteins. I would
take weekends off from
working out and just focus
on my diet so I did not feel
When I was introduced to
Healthy Choices, Healthy
Changes (HCHC), I had already lost 100 lbs but would never have
had the confidence to go to a gym and work out, or even ask people
to show me how to use the machines. From the beginning, my
trainer was upbeat and pushed me closer to my goal. I was able to
push myself harder than I had before.
Being able to go to a gym takes away any excuse I could come up
with to not exercise at home. The program even pays for me to go
back and forth to the gym by taxi so I don’t have an excuse to not go!
I was also able to join Weight Watchers through the HCHC program.
This helped tremendously with my diet and motivated me even
more to continue my weight loss. I get weighed in weekly at Weight
Watchers and I get excited each week to see how much weight I have
lost or gained.
My confidence and strength are at an all-time high, which has
motivated me to go back to college. I have lost a total of 147 lbs (60
with HCHC). My own hard work and the HCHC program has not
only helped with my weight loss, but with my mental health as well.
I weigh less than 200 lbs for the first time in 10 years. Each day, my
mental and physical health gets better – and I am grateful.
me to do that!?” After all, walking up and down the stairs
made me breathe heavily. So heavily, in fact, I would
sometimes have to stop and rest half way up or down the
stairs just to catch my breath.
The next day, my boyfriend went to work and I decided to
try the DVD exercises in my living room. I started doing
as much as I could; pushing myself to the limit. Slowly I
felt more confidence and perseverance; I just felt better
all around, mentally and physically! I tried to exercise at
least 4 days a week, if not 5. I did not want to overwhelm
myself with diet yet so I just pushed myself through
the exercises as much as I could, doing more while my
confidence grew!
