Today we want to highlight one of our services: Our Grief Counseling Program
We provide low-fee counseling to residents of Alameda County of all ages who are bereaved or affected by the traumatic loss through suicide, homicide, or sudden loss. Our support groups for suicide survivors and those who have attempted suicide are vital for isolated and at-risk individuals during times of loss.
Bereavement groups are provided to adults 18 years of age and older. Individual Bereavement Counseling is provided to individuals, couples, families, and children.
Services are provided by counselors-in-training who are gaining hours toward licensure and are supervised by licensed therapists.

Thinking about working through lunch today? Check this out: A recent study has shown the taking a 15-minute walk or mindfulness break during lunch might actually increase concentration in the afternoon.
"Theoretically, walks in nature can lead to 'attention restoration'—recovery from cognitive overload after intense focus—while also being enjoyable, while mindfulness can increase our positive emotions, relieve stress, and boost focus."
So give yourself a break today...you (and maybe even your boss!) will be glad you did.
