CSG partners with Bexley City Schools and others for Bexley Be Well: a Community Conversation on Wellness
Ben Simon

Launch Event to take Place September 4 

The mental and physical health of our students and community is always important at CSG. This year, we will deepen the conversation as we explore our 2019-2020 theme of “Individuals in mind and community at heart.” 

As part of understanding the important topic of mental and physical wellness, this fall CSG will join Bexley City Schools and nearly 30 community partners for Bexley Be Well: A Community Conversation about Wellness. The Bexley Be Well initiative will include a series of events hosted by the partners throughout the year, starting with a launch event Wednesday, September 4, from 6:30pm-8:30pm in the Schottenstein Theater at Bexley High School. Attendees will watch a screening of the film Angst followed by a panel discussion with mental health experts.

Following the launch event, the Bexley community and residents are encouraged to read “What Made Maddy Run” by Kate Fagan from Sept. 5 through Oct. 5. The book can be purchased at the Sept. 4 launch event; at Gramercy Books, 2424 E. Main St.; or borrowed from the Bexley Public Library, 2411 E. Main St. CSG and other organizations will then host book discussions featuring the text within their own communities.

On November 21, CSG will host a book discussion with author and girls’ mental health expert, Lisa Damour, PhD. Damour is the author of Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls. Damour’s visit will be open to CSG, Bexley, and central Ohio communities. Registration information for that event will be available soon. Click here to signup to be the first to know when registration is live.
