From Facebook page: Skipping, jumping and power walking were big in Albany's Old South End. Everyone there knew how to motor their feet. That's why TNTD and ECHOES interviewees in their 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s are still vibrant. Their vigor must have something to do with walking. So news flash! After years of making driving work almost everywhere, the US Surgeon General is promoting the enormous health benefits of walkable communities where jobs, homes, stores and schools are closer together. Organization: Documentary Event: Airing WMHT Dec 1 at 7:30 pm

Understanding Mental Illness – Segment on Schenectady Today In & Around the Capital Region with Guest: Roy E. Neville, President. They offer an education and support group for parents and near relatives of individuals with serious mental illness (currently through Ellis Hospital psychiatry dept.). We hold regular meetings of members and do education and advocacy in the community and in the state legislature on behalf of those with these illnesses. We all experience emotional ups and downs from time to time caused by events in our lives. Mental health conditions go beyond these emotional reactions and become something longer lasting. They are medical conditions that cause changes in how we think and feel and in our mood. They are not the result of personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing. With proper treatment, people can realize their full potential, cope with the stresses of life, work productively and make meaningful contributions to the world. Without mental health we cannot be fully healthy. They educate, advocate, listen and lead with public awareness. Organization: NAMI Schenectady Contact: P.O.
