Over 200 Attend the Parent Project® Reunion

On May 15th, 2016, SMC BHRS Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) hosted its 3rd Annual Parent Project® Reunion at the Beresford Recreation and Community Center in San Mateo. It was a wonderful opportunity for Parent Project graduates to reconnect with their fellow classmates and facilitators, and celebrate their journey as parents along with their families and friends.  Over 200 people attended the reunion and enjoyed the event which included catching up with fellow classmates, watching Folklorico performances by South San Francisco High School’s Alma de Mexico, participating in our fingerprint tree art activity, participating in the Be The One photo booth to end the stigma of mental health conditions, enjoying live entertainment by Los Tres Reyes and delicious food catered by Mango’s Mexican Grill.

Thank you to all of those who came to celebrate with us! Special thanks to those volunteered and made our event such a success!  Thank you to Maggie Furey, Parent Project Coordinator, Dr. Maria Lorente-Foresti, Central County Mental Health Clinic Unit Chief and Mayra Gonzalez, ODE Intern for all of the work they have done to coordinate such an amazing course and resource for parents throughout the county and all of their planning to make the Parent Project Reunion possible.
