Emergence Health Network (EHN) has teamed up with Borderplex Realty Trust and the ONE San Jacinto Building to light up a portion of downtown El Paso in recognition of May as Mental Health Awareness Month. “Green is the symbolic color associated with mental health awareness so what better way to bring mindfulness to this important issue in our community, than to light up part of downtown El Paso green,” said Kristi Daugherty, EHN CEO. “We were thrilled when Borderplex Realty Trust decided to help us literally shed some light on this cause by lighting the building green.”

EHN would like to encourage the El Paso community to talk about mental health and the mental wellbeing of their family and friends. “When you are driving downtown and see the green lights discuss it. Talk about suicide prevention and depression. Find out if your loved ones are feeling stressed and anxious about anything and more importantly talk about how it’s okay discuss it and how counseling and treatment are available. Those conversations can save lives!” added Daugherty.

Spotlight on Success

East Valley Mental Health Outpatient Clinic

Through the EHN mental health outpatient clinics, El Paso residents have access to mental health care at several different locations throughout the city. Andrew Leal says his doctor’s appointments, regular visits with his caseworkers and regulation of his medication has made a difference in his life. “It has provided stabilization through medicine prescriptions to treat my (bipolar) condition. My caseworker has been a blessing, helping me to better understand my diagnosis and develop coping strategies to deal with symptoms.”

“Our mental health professionals at EHN are committed to helping those in our community to ensure their needs are at the center of care,” said Kristi Daugherty, EHN Chief Executive Officer. “Having a mental illness is like other medical conditions, meaning treatment for that condition is vital and we want our community to know there are resources available in our area to get the help they need.” Andrew agrees, “Our community needs to know that these conditions can happen to anyone and are not always obvious, they vary by person. We need to work harder to lessen the stigma and increase the understanding of mental illness and more importantly increase awareness that treatment is so important. For me, learning coping techniques have helped. Developing stress relief methods, finding which activities or methods were most therapeutic and utilizing them more. My relapses and crisis episodes have become fewer and easier to handle.”

I am more independent in my daily living skills. Before I was lost, I suffered a lot of depression and sadness, but now I am content and proud to have so many people who care for me.”

At the EHN Day Rehabilitation Learning Center EHN provides both recreational and pre-vocational activities to help consumers learn how to be more active in the community. The curriculum also includes life skills lessons to encourage independence and allows consumers to move between classrooms where they are engaged in such courses as math, science, writing, dance and art classes throughout the day.

Here, the IDD individuals can live independently, but continue to get comprehensive and individualized health care and rehabilitation services.
