Mental Health in Palm Bay

Overeating can be linked to a number of physical health problems, as everyone is well aware, but it can be both a symptom and a cause of mental health problems as well. Yet, stopping can be difficult, because compulsive overeating can more closely resemble an addiction than a simple bad habit.2 The Overeater’s Anonymous Support Group at the Our Lady of Grace Church in Palm Bay, Florida can offer those coping with compulsive overeating support, knowledge, and compassion as they work toward a mentally and physically healthier lifestyle.3 For more information, current schedules, and the full list of support groups available at Our Lady of Grace Church, call (321) 725-3066.

Bullying is taken seriously in the Brevard County School District, and bullying reports are filled out when any incidence of bullying is noted. Although Acacia Woodley agreed with the program of reporting, tracking, and responding to bullying, her Tiny Girl, Big Dream Foundation sought to improve relationships between Palm Bay residents in a new way.4 The foundation places brightly colored “friendship benches” in school and around town—including in front of city hall—where anyone can take a seat to indicate they need the support, comfort, or caring a friend can offer. To find out more about how Palm Bay’s friendship benches are transforming relationships in the community, or to donate, call (321) 952-3400.
