    New Directions is pleased to welcome Ellen Sharkoski to present Resiliency and YOU. Ms. Sharkoski will give an introduction of how energy helps one meet challenging goals and maintain a healthy and balanced perspective. She will discuss that while some people seem to be more resilient, we can all become more resilient by expanding our behaviors to recover our energy.

    The four sources of energy (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) will be explored. Ms. Sharkoski will discuss implementing behaviors that create a positive, resilient individual with an improved sense of wellbeing and peace.

    Ms. Sharkoski is a Wellness Coordinator with Exos/Medifit Corporate Services and holds a degree in kinesiology from The Pennsylvania State University in State College, Pennsylvania.

    Unless otherwise noted, support meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month and educational meetings are held on the third Monday. All meetings are open to the public. However, support meetings are only open to persons 18 years of age and older who have depression or bipolar disorder, and their adult family and friends.
