Unison Behavioral Health Group introduces recovery posters


Toledo, Dec. 30, 2008: According to Unison Behavioral Health Group, creative expression is a critical component in recovery. In other words, “As one paints, old hurts are healed and new dreams are discovered.”   


In this photo, Unison introduces its first recovery poster, created by a participant in the Genesis Partial Hospitalization Program.


The Genesis Program, in existence since 1996, provides intensive outpatient treatment on a daily basis to adults with a serious mental illness, who may be experiencing an increase in symptoms, or who need further support following - or to prevent - a hospitalization. Individuals who attend Genesis are often facing severe stressors such as trauma, loss, violence, homelessness, depression and addiction.


The goal of the program is to help clients stabilize, regain hope, and develop safe and effective coping skills.  The group-based treatment program includes art therapy.


“Art making instills hope,” says Carol Coder, art therapist at Unison. “Creating art calls one to action, to question, to choose, to organize, and to express.    


“Through shared art experiences - such as Genesis’ Painting Possibilities Studio - in which Joseph Webber’s “Majestic Mountain” was created - connections and community supports are expanded. Isolation, despair and hopelessness lessen as self-confidence and self-worth increase.”  


A limited number of posters are now on sale for $10 each.  To purchase posters, or for more information on Unison Behavioral Health Group, please call 419-693-0631 and ask for Kitty Slight.
