Mental Health Magazine “The Empowerment” to Launch in Sacramento, Sacpros











Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2011

SACPROS.org is preparing to launch a mental health magazine for the Greater Sacramento called “The Empowerment”, which will publish information on many topics relating to the mental health community. Articles of interest will include information on symptom management, alternative strategies, current approaches taught in the greater Sacramento area, health and wellness perspectives and many other topics.

According to SACPROS Network Director, Marilyn Washington “the magazine will create a new and positive image for people with mental health issues working towards their recovery and hopefully help eliminate some of the prevailing stereotypes about mental illness”. It will provide the ability for people with mental illnesses to express their opinions on all areas of their wellness and recovery, something they normally do not get to do in a public way. “SACPROS wants The Empowerment to be an uplifting voice in mental health community”, said Ms. Washington.

“The mental health community is larger than those who are already in the mental health system and who are highly challenged. It also includes a larger population of people who are currently in mainstream society, but who are struggling in their jobs or relationships, dealing with losses, or who are working through addiction issues. The mental health community might also include our friends, family, neighbors and coworkers who have never sought out support services”, said Terry Zick, Wellness Editor of The Empowerment. The official launch is scheduled for June 2011.”We’re very excited,” she said,” about the launch of this magazine”.

The magazine will have an initial print run of 25,000 copies that will be distributed for free every quarter to schools, colleges, bus stops, coffee shops, local hospitals, mental health agencies, grocery stores, room and board homes, boarding care homes and police stations. In 6 to 9 months, SACPROS hopes to increase the copies to 54,000.

The Empowerment will also enable counselors, therapists, clinical Social workers, clinical Psychologists, mental health prevention specialists, educators, nurses, physicians & psychiatrists, hospitals and treatment centers and other behavioral healthcare professionals to promote their vital programs and services to the mental health community. The deadline for placing ads in magazine for the Summer 2011 issue is May 15th, 2011.

Sacramento,CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2011

The Empowerment Magazine is the first print and online magazine to focus exclusively on promoting overall wellness and mental health resiliency for the Sacramento region.

The first issue features articles on pursuing contentment and happiness, the resiliency factor, working with your psychiatrist, thinking fresh and eating clean and a kid’s corner. Also, included is a special interview with Doctor Hazem Hashem on the important triangle between the physician, the patient and their psychiatric medications.

“We were lacking a publication in Greater Sacramento that promotes uplifting voices in the mental health community and we found this inexcusable,” said Amede Kyubwa, founder of the Empowerment Magazine and sacpros.org. The magazine aims at creating a new and positive image for people with lived experience of mental health challenges, “and also helps to eliminate some of the prevailing stereotypes about mental illness,” added Kyubwa

“The magazine empowers individuals with direct or indirect experience of living with or overcoming mental heath issues to talk about their positive experiences; something they normally do not get to do in a public way,” said Marilyn Washington, Sacpros Community Network Director.

25,000 copies of the Empowerment Magazine are being distributed all over the Sacramento Region in a variety of agencies, venues and retail stores. The magazine can also be read anytime online at http://www.sacpros.org. The free quarterly magazine is published by Sacpros.org. The magazine’s next issue is due in September 2011
