LifeRing’s Regional Representative for the East Coast, Mona H., made an appearance on a Greenwich, CT, radio station recently. Mona has started several LifeRing meetings in Greenwich and has become involved in some of the regional organizations that seek to support the efforts of community treatment programs. Networking with those people led to the invitation to appear on the radio station. You can listen to the program by going to http://www.wgch.com/showarchive/shs.shtml and selecting the 09/15/10 podcast. Be patient — Mona doesn’t come on for about five minutes.

Mona has also been the driving force in trying to get more people involved in telephone conference call LifeRing meetings, an option for those without easy access to a face-to-face meeting or who want to supplement LifeRing’s on-line options. Conference call meetings are currently used every Sunday evening for the LSRsafe group and have been running for over 3 years. There is great opportunity for more of these meetings during the week and a Wed meeting has been suggested , and may be announced soon. Any one interested in how a call meeting works or who’d like to join one, should call or e-mail the Service Center and the message will be passed on to Mona.
