How many times are the words Anger and Violent unintentionally incorporated to give the misleading impression that both are one and the same?

There are numerous forms of Anger that affect people from all walks of life in various ways.
It is commonly accepted that all people display some form of Anger at sometime or other as they tread life's pathway, therefore, it would be logical to assume that it is the way in which one chooses to control their Anger that determines an even balance. Only then can the healing process begin keeping in mind that it takes Time-Patience-Understanding and above all…..Commitment.

THISTLES THORNS AND TURMOIL:
Suicide Prevention Program for Youth.



The list of reasons for Youth Suicide can go on forever they are numerous, however, the most common of all statements that suggest there is a problem begin with verbal comments such as; No-one loves me.
No one cares.
No-one's listening.
Who gives a shit, I wish I were dead.

The THISTLES THORNS AND TURMOIL program was created and initiated for Youth by Youth who do give a shit. It takes Youth back to the basics of life. It assists Youth to cope with the everyday stress of living in today's society and most importantly, it helps them to realize that they are a unique and important person and that life Is really worth living.

At the present time Thistles, Thorns and Turmoil program is being trialed in Whanganui and Taranaki. It is hoped that it can be expanded into other Communities as and when resources become available.

WAITING TO DIE.
For the Terminally ill and their Families.

This program is dedicated to those special people we were fortunate to meet and who shared with us their most intimate reflections, feelings (joyful & sad) and final moments on this earth. People who for obvious reasons shall remain anonymous saw a need for the creation of a program such as this. It is never easy to accept the fact that you are going to die eventually but when you are told that you have an incurable disease and you will die sooner than later shock, sadness and depression are just some of the symptoms that occur within. For some family members it will be shattering news and in some cases they are likely to be more effected by it emotionally long after the individual has
passed on. When someone is terminally ill they often have mood swings from time to time which is to be expected and do not like to be pampered or waited on every minute of the day there may also be days when all they want to do is talk. The most important thing we have experienced while providing homecare for terminally ill individuals is that they appreciate honesty and have no time for sympathy or idle chatter

This program covers such topics as:

1.Discovery and Reaction.

2.Acceptance.

3.Learning to Cope.

4.Peace of Mind.

5.Moving On.
