News Release

May 27, 2016

At the May Board of Directors’ meeting of the Discovery Counseling Center, Chris McCrary and Eric Miller of Katalyst Events and Marty Breen of Forward Motion Sports presented to the Board two checks totaling $7,000 which were the proceeds from this year’s Devil Mt. Run and a donation from Forward Motion Sports. In awarding the check, Mr. McCrary noted that this year’s race brought out more participants than in the past four years, doubling the number of runners since the race was resurrected in 2012. He pointed out that the Devil Mt. Run is a healthy family event that reinforces the important relationship between physical and mental health.

Board Chair, Jackie Fineberg, thanked Katalyst Events and Forward Motion for their commitment to the community and for the critical support that they have given to Discovery. Ms. Fineberg said, “Discovery is not only deeply grateful for the generous monetary contribution, but also for the opportunity that the Devil Mt. Run gives us to get the word out to the community about the resources available at Discovery Counseling Center. The success of the Devil Mt. Run helps ensure that this community knows that affordable and high quality counseling is only one phone call away”.

Hole-in-One Wins Local Golfer New Rolex

One swing of the club in a Danville golf tournament for a good cause, and local golfer Mark Matheny earned himself a brand-new Rolex watch, courtesy of sponsor Heller Jewelers. Mark Matheny recorded a hole-in-one last month at Crow Canyon Country Club while playing in the Discovery Counseling Center's annual golf tournament, marking the first time in the tournament's 17-year history that a golfer tallied an acre to win the Heller Jewelers prize. He recently joined Kathy Chiverton, executive director of Discovery Counseling Center, at Heller Jewelers with owners Scott and Catherine Heller to pick out his new watch. 
The 17th annual Discovery Counseling golf Classic raised almost $25,000 for the organization, "which will provide much-needed financial assistance to families who might otherwise not be able to afford mental health counseling," Chiverton said.  Discovery Counseling offers affordable, high-quality mental health services and strategies for improving bonding and healthy communication among families. Specific counseling occurs in areas such as child temperament, adolescent issues, alcohol recovery, family disharmony, anger management, anxiety, eating disorders, depression, divorce, grief and loss, and self-esteem.

Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don't know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery.
