Interview with Fortified Roofing

Fortified Roofing, local roofers from Cherry Hill, recently started a new local project with the goal to promote various non-governmental and non-profit organizations from New Jersey. They will be conducting many short interviews with these organizations so more people could find out about their existence and work.

We are very grateful that Fortified Roofing decided to showcase ACI and what we do for people with disabilities! Visit their website at the link below to read the interview.

Volunteer Blog: Project Hope and Beyond

Written By Niodhi Joshi, Volunteer Blog Writer for ACI

Therese Borchard, founder of an online community for people who struggle with depression and anxiety; and the website has many things to offer for the friends and family of the patients with mental illness. The website address is community.projecthopeandbeyond.com and Project Hope and Beyond is a program of Psych Central Community Connection.

A resource like this is valuable to the ones that struggle to find a good fit in order to cure themselves from the mental illness. Many attempts are made by the mentally ill to get better in terms of mental health. I am talking about this from my personal experience as a patient of Rutgers University Behavioral Health Center. Sudden ups and downs in the treatment make the patients go through frustration which negatively affects the current treatment. A program like PHB can help those patients figure out their symptoms and find necessary coping skills that would help to make the treatment work wonders with a possibility of no relapse after completion of the treatment or therapy.
