Austin Grief wants to give a huge shoutout to long-time volunteer, Rose Schneier! Rose joined ACGL as a volunteer back in 2020, and has been an integral part of our Support Group Facilitator Team. Always willing to step in when needed, Rose has been subbing for a variety of groups, even after moving from Austin to the Pacific Northwest.

With a huge heart and dedication to the work, Rose is a shining example of what makes a good volunteer. We couldn't do what do without volunteers like her! Thank you, Rose!

Today we highlight Joey Fechtel NCC, LPC-Associate who has been working with us since May of 2022. Joey began working with the center as an intern while studying for his master’s degree at St. Edward's University, a decision he made after years of personally working through his own death loss in therapy. He has worked with clients of all ages, ranging from 4 to 76, which works well with his preferred method of counseling: collaborative therapy.

A Message from our Interim Clinical Director, Nanci Silver-Boice, MEd, MA, LMFT-S, LPC-S: "Hope" is forwarding facing. The word hope is from the Greek word elpis and it means expectation, trust, and confidence. It comes from the root word elpo, which means to anticipate (with pleasure) and to welcome. As we move close out May, all of us at Austin Grief, wish you hope, expectation, anticipation, and trust in finding healing, contentment, purpose, and meaning in your life.

🌟 Laughter: A Powerful Tool for Mental Health 🌟

May is Mental Health Month, and what better time to explore the incredible connection between laughter and mental well-being? Our Clinical Director, Nanci Silver Boice, sheds light on the science behind why "Laughter is the Best Medicine." 💬

This old axiom is supported by current mental health research. Laughter changes body chemistry and brain function. It increases heart and respiratory rates and oxygen intake. Laughter lowers the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. After these initial changes, a person moves into a state of relaxation. While these effects may not be equivalent to aerobic exercise, they are beneficial: 10-15 minutes of laughter per day may burn 10-40 extra calories.

According to the article, “Therapeutic Effects of Laughter in Mental Health: A Theoretical Review”, by Jong Eum Yin, “Laughter therapy is a kind of cognitive-behavioral therapy that could make physical, psychological, and social relationships healthy, ultimately improving the quality of life. Laughter therapy, as a non-pharmacological, alternative treatment, has a positive effect on mental health and the immune system. In addition, laughter therapy does not require specialized preparations, such as suitable facilities and equipment, and it is easily accessible and acceptable.” A joke a day may keep us more mentally and physically healthy. Tell your best joke, laugh at a comedy show, and breathe deeply.
