Our “First Wednesdays” mental health lecture series is open to the general community. This series of presentations is an opportunity for members of the community to learn about mental health issues and topics. First Wednesday presentations are free of charge. Those guests seeking to become clinical volunteers are also invited to stay for lunch ($8 per person), meet the Center’s volunteers, and learn more about the Center.
Current Faulk Center for Counseling clients and those who have been clients within the past six months are not eligible to become clinical volunteers, and thus should not attend the volunteer lunch. This is necessary in order to maintain the professional relationship between clients and the clinical team.
Reservations for lunch are required. Please call (561) 483-5300 for more information.
*First Wednesday dates are subject to change.
The Center’s Psychodramatists perform skits depicting typical life situations and relationship conflicts. The scenes are roughly scripted, but actual dialogue is improvised. After each skit, actors remain in character and engage in an interactive discussion with the audience. In addition to providing entertainment, psychodrama performances increase awareness and understanding of psychological and sociological issues.
All actors are Center volunteers. Proceeds from performances are used to help fund the Center. Please call for more information on scheduling a performance for your club or community.
The Speaker’s Bureau provides staff and volunteer speakers to promote community awareness of the Center’s services and programs. Informational presentations usually include a brief video about the Center and a question-answer session. Community organizations that would like to arrange for a speaker can call the Center for information.
