“Anyone can benefit from attending these wellness workshops,” said CEO and President Jamie Lehane. “So often people think of physical health or mental health as if they were mutually exclusive, but they’re often not. For example, too much anxiety may contribute to high blood pressure. At Newport Mental Health, we treat the whole person.”
Other Wednesday Workshops slated are” Pre-diabetes and Diabetes” on Wednesday, Oct. 31, and “Delicious Nutrition and Creative Exercise Routines” on Wednesday, Nov. 7, both at Newport Mental Health, 127 Johnny Cake Hill Road, Middletown, from 1:30 to 3:30.
