Harmony House Open Day Schizophrenia Awareness Week 2016
Great writeup in the Macarthur Chronicle 18 May "Harmony House paves road to recovery"
Harmony House Cancer Council Fundraiser
A big congratulations and thank you to all the Harmony House members
that participated in raising funds for the Cancer Council’s Biggest
Morning Tea. In NSW 37,500 new cases of Cancer are expected to be
diagnosed, with Cancer statistics so high most of our members and staff
have been affected by Cancer in some form. Members of Harmony House
participated in raising funds through donations, a Biggest Morning Tea
and an afternoon Quiz. Many of our members themselves do it tough so to
have raised $92 on the day with that amount still rising shows the
compassion of our members in helping such a worthwhile cause.
Congratulations to Christine, Val and Justin for taking first, second
and third prizes in the Quiz, it was a great effort by all.
Chinese Christmas Lunch at Harmony House (2015): Working
in Mental health can at times be challenging, so those times when you
get to experience how far members have come in their recovery journey
and their appreciation of the help and support given to them by staff
makes you realise the positive impact that you can have as a worker. On
December 8th five Harmony House Members organised a surprise for Harmony
House staff and Sandra McDonald from Beautiful Minds. They had
transformed our dining area into an oriental themed room; Lorraine read
to us a folktale on how the twelve animals in the Chinese Zodiac were
determined. Each place setting was carefully set with menu card, a
Chinese hat for us to wear, and our own personal Chinese Zodiac.
The effort and time that these members put into planning this event down
to the very last detail was inspiring, down to hand making the hats,
table settings, and Logo’s for their uniforms, the hanging of Chinese
paper lanterns, the soft Chinese music in the background and the most
incredible meal consisting of Steamed Dim Sims with Prawn Crackers,
Sweet and Sour Pork, Fried Rice, Stir Fried Vegetables, Chicken and
Almonds, finished off with Lemon Mint Tapioca with Lychees and
Needless to say that we were all amazed and proud of their efforts not
to mention needing to undo a belt buckle or two to accommodate the extra
space needed from all the food that we ate. This lunch was put on as a
thank you to staff, and in return we would like to thank the members of
Harmony that participated in this great day for reminding us that we are
appreciated and that what we do matters.
