Schizoaffective disorder – a combination of schizophrenia and a mood disorder – is a particularly mean affliction. Many sufferers have anosognosia – the sincere delusion that they are not sick. Katie Feick suffers from schizoaffective disorder. Now, in solid recovery, she works part time as a physical therapist in acute care at OSU. She is also a mental health advocate with NAMI Franklin County, NAMI Ohio, ADAMH Franklin County, Mental Health America Franklin County, and the Columbus Police Crisis Intervention Team training. She is a living example that recovery is possible even for those with the most severe disorders. She’ll be talking about her experience before recovery, her recovery, and her very productive life thereafter.

Dog Swim

Athens City Pool, Athens

Saturday, August 20, 2016       10 am-1 pm

The dog swim at the Athens City Pool sponsored by

Friendly Paws Pet Supplies & Grooming is always a

fun time!

$5 per dog to enter; larger donations are welcome.

Donations will be used for a spay/neuter fund.

All dogs must be up to date with their vaccinations

including bordetella which covers kennel cough.

This must have been at least 2 days prior to the event.

Please bring vet paperwork with you, or your dog(s)

will not be able to enter the event.

The pool will be closed one week prior to this event

and the staff stops adding chemicals at that time. The

pool water will then be safe for the dogs to enter. The

pools are drained after the Dog Swim event.

Dogs of all sizes are welcome but are not separated.

Dogs who may not want to jump in the large pool are

usually comfortable playing in the kiddie pool.

Please bring balls that are disposable and do not need

to be returned.

Humans are NOT allowed in the water of either pool.
