Mental Disorders and DSM IV

The modern view of mental disorder has evolved greatly over the last
century. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental disorders (DSM)
is on its fourth revision, and it is the main guide that medical
professionals use in communicating information about mental illness. This
discussion will cover a brief history of the document, a survey of the
major controversies involving it, and the issues surrounding its future.

This  Presentation is by Charles Fisher

WALK THE WALK PDF Print E-mail

On September 8, Diamonds on the Avenue will present Christian Care’s 3rd annual Walk the Walk to “de feet” domestic violence at Prospect Park in Moline. The purpose of the walk is to build community awareness about the pervasive problem of domestic violence in the Quad Cities. Christian Care also hopes to raise funds for its shelter, the only dedicated domestic violence shelter on the Illinois side of the Quad Cities. Funds will go directly to programs that achieve results. After residing at Christian Care and completing their program, the rate at which women return to their abusers is around 3%, compared to the national average of 30%.

After hearing a riveting testimonial from a survivor, the solidarity walk will begin at 10:00 AM. The cost to register is only $5 and includes a t-shirt and goody bag. Those 15 and under can walk for free. An Awareness Festival will immediately follow the walk and will continue until 2:00 PM. No admission fee is required for the festival. Kuk Sool Martial Arts will demonstrate their skill and faculty will teach basic self-defense moves. Salsa Touch Latin Dance Studio will conduct a Zumba master class, complete with dance instruction. The festival will provide fun for the entire family, including door prizes, live music, cake walks, face painting, a magician and the “Hands are Not for Hitting” art project. Other festival highlights include a silent auction, bake sale and delicious food and beverages available for purchase.

To register—or for more details about Walk the Walk—call Rebecca at 309/786-5734. Find more information about Christian Care online at christiancareqc.org or at facebook.com/christiancareqc.

Christian Care is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose vision is to transform lives. Through its mission of providing safe shelter, support and resources, Christian Care empowers both the homeless and survivors of domestic violence to make positive changes in every aspect of their lives. Christian Care’s two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for women and children and a rescue mission  or men—serve homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and those with mental illnesses. If you know someone in need, call the Christian Care Crisis Hotline at any hour of the day or night at 309/788-2273.
