Sacramento,CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2011
The Empowerment Magazine is the first print and online magazine to focus exclusively on promoting overall wellness and mental health resiliency for the Sacramento region.
The first issue features articles on pursuing contentment and happiness, the resiliency factor, working with your psychiatrist, thinking fresh and eating clean and a kid’s corner. Also, included is a special interview with Doctor Hazem Hashem on the important triangle between the physician, the patient and their psychiatric medications.
"We were lacking a publication in Greater Sacramento that promotes uplifting voices in the mental health community and we found this inexcusable," said Amede Kyubwa, founder of the Empowerment Magazine and sacpros.org. The magazine aims at creating a new and positive image for people with lived experience of mental health challenges, "and also helps to eliminate some of the prevailing stereotypes about mental illness," added Kyubwa
"The magazine empowers individuals with direct or indirect experience of living with or overcoming mental heath issues to talk about their positive experiences; something they normally do not get to do in a public way," said Marilyn Washington, Sacpros Community Network Director.
25,000 copies of the Empowerment Magazine are being distributed all over the Sacramento Region in a variety of agencies, venues and retail stores. The magazine can also be read anytime online at http://www.sacpros.org. The free quarterly magazine is published by Sacpros.org. The magazine's next issue is due in September 2011
