I just wanted to let you know about the “good news” event on 6 South this afternoon that was facilitated by 6 South Staff, with leadership and assistance from Sacred Walker, pastoral care intern and Melanie her social worker.
MJ missed her high school graduation yesterday. Today in the 1 South Courtyard, we had a “graduation ceremony.” Sacred and Melanie helped coordinate the event. MJ’s family was delighted. Her guidance counselor awarded her with her very own High School diploma. Brother Eric provided the music as she donned a cap and gown and did a processional. Dr. H, her psychiatrist, also attended. The patient asked if she could bring the food and cake from her ceremony to share with her peers.
Today was truly a great day for the women’s unit.”
