4/28 Minding Your Minds 9th Annual Community Forum on Mental Health

Minding Your Mind’s (MYM) primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens and young adults, their parents, teachers and school administrators. Our goal is to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues and illnesses. Treatment is available, yet only 3 out of 10 individuals needing help actually seek help.  Our educational programs, which are free to area Middle and High Schools,  provide information regarding signs and symptoms of these disorders, in addition to stressing that they are treatable and treatment available.

Minding Your Mind’s Forum is the largest free public mental health forum in the Philadelphia Area.   This year we are proud to have Dr. Gail Saltz and Carl Antisell as speakers.  Dr. Saltz is a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, columnist, bestselling author and television commentator.  She is a regular health contributor on NBC's Today Show.   Minding Your Mind speaker, Carl Antisell, will share his story of long-term recovery and how he overcame addictive substances as a way to relieve ongoing anxiety and depression.

4/30 Save Coach Haggerty's House

The last few years have been pretty rough, but that has not stopped John Haggerty from reaching out to help others. He has opened his home to take in others who would be homeless otherwise. Many of you know him as Coach Haggs for coaching championship hockey at Lasalle High School. He has saved lives on and off the ice through the years. He has tutored young men in various subjects, who have gone on to be successful in college and careers. 

John has a heart of gold and will help people even if it means going without, himself. This winter, he took in a family who were living in their car. He gave up his memory foam bed to sleep on his old, lumpy couch, for the parents to sleep in his room. He had broken ribs at the time. To those of you who know him, this is no surprise. He is also more concerned about providing paying work for those depending on him than he is about his own business situation.

He is a master woodworker and the most patient teacher most of us have ever met. He would love to be full time working in his shop, making beautiful pieces, solving problems and helping people develop new products.

He has helped countless people in various ways without asking anything in return. Now, we are asking on his behalf. He is in bankruptcy. The bank is still trying to take his house. He needs $60,000 to stop the foreclosure. $150,000 would pay off the house and shop altogether. There is no doubt that it will be paid forward, for truly it already has been, in the lives John has saved and 100s more he has enriched!

5/24 Strikeouts for Katie

On March 4, 2014 Katie Castaldi passed away in a tragic car accident on the Route 30 bypass near Reeceville Road, in Chester County Pennsylvania. Katie was an extraordinary young woman. Although she was only 31 years old, through dedication and hard work Katie became a successful master Hair Stylist and Image Consultant over the past 15 years. She worked for Ultimate Image, a hair salon and spa in Jeffersonville, PA. She was a 2000 graduate of Downingtown Senior High School and the Center for Arts and Technology School of Cosmetology. She went on to receive a bachelor's degree in communications from Temple University in 2005. She was a diligent person who lived by the motto, "Work hard, play hard." She was always spending quality time with her family and friends....and Capone (her dog). Even doing all their hair cuts and stylings, including Capones. Katie was known for her smile that could light up a room, and personality and essence that just drew you  in. Katie was outgoing, radiant, and extremely loving person who touched the lives of all those that met her.

On March 13, 2014 friends of Katie created a Facebook page to organize an Annual Co-Ed (Slow Pitch) Softball Tournament and Fundraiser to be held on May 24, 2014 (Rain Date May 25, 2014) at the Downingtown Little League in Honor of Katie. And thanks to Erin Davis Tuohey, for coming up with the name STRIKEOUTS FOR KATIE.

A percentage will be donated for a Scholarship(s) at Cat Brandywine for Cosmetology in Katie Castaldi's name, Lock's of Love, and the Downingtown Little League. As well as any expenses for the Tournament. Any remaining proceeds will be used toward next years Tournament and Scholarship.
