Moving on from high school to college, other training programs, or the workforce is an exciting time for young people, often filled with adventure and opportunity. At the same time, these transitions can present wellness challenges. This presentation, made as part of the NAMI New Jersey Hearts & Minds program, is intended for young people, parents, educators, and the public. It will introduce concepts of overall wellness, SMART goal setting, and support systems. Join us for this important and informative presentation by Jay Yudof, MS, Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner of the National Alliance of Mental Illness.
Barry Wiesenfeld, a musician, published author, and faculty member of SUNY and Ramapo College, will present this four-part series designed to give participants a deeper understanding of music. We will touch on music history, theory and milestones of the different eras and composers who made their mark. While primarily focused on classical music, there is a significant element of jazz in the program as well, and interestingly, the parallels that exist in the two styles – a topic not often explored. A fee of $40 will be charged for this series. To register, call the library at[masked]
