BURRILLVILLE – When the Bisson family rescued Pepé, a then 5-year-old standard poodle, they had no idea how the animal would change their quality of life.

Holly Bisson, 35, has Down’s syndrome and at the time, mother Annie Bisson said her daughter was often frustrated with trying to communicate, which resulted in tense and sometimes scary situations in the home.

“Her language skills are not great,” said Annie.

Pepé’s former owner had recently passed away and Annie said she hoped to provide the dog with temporary shelter while helping him find a new permanent placement.

This plan changed the day the Bisson’s met Pepé.

“He got attached to Holly,” Annie said. “He wouldn’t leave her by his side.

Back home in Pascoag, Pepé followed Holly as she walked through the house, a few steps behind her.

The dog slept in Holly’s bed that first night two years ago, and has been there ever since.

Annie says she first knew Pepé was special a day soon after moving in, when his daughter had a change in mood, a fairly common occurrence in the Bisson household linked to Holly’s condition.

“He got in between us and leaned against her,” Annie said. “She was stroking him and all of a sudden there was no more anger.”

“For me it was surprising,” she said. “Poodles are extremely intelligent.”

Annie spoke to the family doctor about the possibility of Pepé Holly’s official service dog and he was told the plan could help. She then contacted Stonewall Canine in Bellingham, Mass., And was put in touch with trainer Jen.

Jen began working with Holly to teach the already well-behaved dog how to walk without strain on the leash, get in and out of cars properly, and behave in a public place.

Last year, Pepé obtained his Canine Good Citizen certificate from the American Kennel Club, and assistance dog training continued, with the dog learning to be both a protector for Holly and a constant companion. Assistance dog certification requires the owner to have full control of the animal in any environment, from a busy bank to a shopping mall or restaurant, where Pepé will sit quietly under the table.

“It has to be fixed on her and only on her,” said Annie. “He can’t bark. He cannot intimidate other dogs. Jen wanted as many experiences as possible.

On Friday November 19, Holly and Pepé took the last service dog test and passed. Holly’s new t-shirt, marked with the words “Just a girl who loves her service dog”, also arrived in the mail.

“I don’t know anyone else who has a child with Down’s syndrome who has a service dog,” said Annie. “She is fully responsible for him. Holly worked very hard to be able to achieve this goal.

Now, Pepé goes everywhere with his master, and in the rare cases where he cannot, the dog will sit and wait near the door for “his girlfriend”. If a car arrives, Pepe will prevent Holly from walking in front.

“He just knows that stuff,” Annie said. “Surprisingly, this dog knows how to be safe. “

And the fights that were once so common in the Bisson house?

“Since we got it, we haven’t had it,” said Annie. “He calms her down. We have a better conversation. It’s like night and day.

The dog, Annie said, was skinny when he arrived, before the new owners learned he had a sensitive stomach.

“He’s blossoming now,” she said. “Holly is also on the rise. It has made all the difference in her life. She has a confidence that I have never seen before.

The grateful mother now hopes their success story can reach others.

“It’s awesome,” said Annie. “I think it could help other families. It was the most incredible experience.

“This dog rewarded Holly with exactly what she was missing, we just didn’t know that,” Annie said. “He’s, like, the best dog ever. There’s something about him… I think he just belonged here. It belonged to her and it belonged to our house.

Wishing you good health. As we navigate both the continuing evolution of the pandemic and move into the holiday season, wishes for good health and joy will resonate throughout our community.

But what happens when you add the word “mental” into the mix – like with mental health? It is defined as “of or relating to the spirit”, but this little word carries a lot of baggage. It can evoke light or darkness, attention or madness, calm or fear. As an organization best described as a mental health agency, that word can become a barrier to reaching those who might benefit from the services offered by FSC.

FSC: Supporting good mental health

We are a local, non-profit agency that works to help individuals and families facing relationship issues, anxiety, sadness, grief and more. FSC’s trained and caring counselors are there to help you through times that seem overwhelming or particularly difficult. We also work in the community providing group support after sudden loss, as well as education and skill-building programs designed to teach, connect and help navigate topics ranging from building resilience to COVID management in our community.

Research consistently demonstrates the effectiveness of evidence-based mental health treatments and skill building. FSC is led and supported by those who have witnessed the life changing impacts by working with trained counselors. Our staff and volunteer Board of Directors work tirelessly to raise awareness of FSC’s services and remove barriers that may prevent access.

We remove barriers with qualified and welcoming clinicians, personalized education programs, in-person or telehealth counseling options, being a network provider with many insurance companies and offering discounted rates for those who need it. need it. Even families with health insurance can incur significant costs due to high deductibles and co-payments or “off-grid” clinicians. Most FSC clients receive some type of subsidy.

Community powered, for the community

FSC can do all of this with the support and generosity of neighbors, local businesses, private foundations and grants from local government. Almost 50% of the work at FSC is funded by contributions. The more resources we have, the more help we can offer to our community. In fact, as part of our 2021 annual call (which is currently underway), we are making this community support even more tangible for our clients. We are creating a corridor of hope. Donations by the end of the year will result in a butterfly engraved on our FSC walls. This will let those who walk the halls of FSC know that they are not alone.

It’s the season of joy (and stress)

As we enter this second holiday season impacted by COVID, FSC will continue to invest the resources entrusted to us to better meet local needs. Due to the shared experience of everything remotely, more and more people are relying on online resources. Unfortunately, this has also increased the amount of misinformation, especially when dealing with mental health issues. We strive to increase access to reliable resources online and in person.

A small example is our Holiday Expectations vs. Holiday Realties, currently sent to those who subscribe to FSC (and also available on our website). Because our experienced counselors know firsthand that this time of year can be both joyful and stressful, we asked them to share their thoughts on how best to deal with some of the most common stressors while on vacation. . We hope you take a moment to learn what they said on FamilyServiceCenter.com.

Thanks to many, FSC will continue to look for ways to help our community. From all of us at FSC Happy Holidays ~ I wish you a healthy season (from or in relation to all of you)!

What happens when I contact FSC?

Parents, caregivers, young adults, the elderly, local agency staff, school administrators and counselors all contact FSC when issues arise regarding support for mental and emotional well-being:

• During business hours, a welcome coordinator will speak to you to gather information that will help FSC determine the best way to help you. You can also leave a confidential message after opening hours.

• An FSC therapist will contact you and schedule an admission appointment, in a timely manner, to better understand your treatment needs and make treatment recommendations.

• FSC accepts many insurance plans. FSC will work with you to identify affordable sliding scale fees based on your demonstrated needs when insurance is not available or is not accepted by FSC.

The Jewish Family Service seeks to grow and impact more young people in our community by offering engaging programs and events that help them understand the signs of mental illness, coping strategies and the importance of ask for help if they are having difficulty.

Youth mental health issues are on the rise, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The media are reporting that more and more children are ending up in hospital emergency rooms and experiencing mental health crises. In fact, three major children’s health organizations recently declared the increase in mental illness among young people a national emergency.

The local Jewish community saw this unfortunate challenge coming, and that’s why the We Need to Talk Youth Mental Health Program was created in 2017.

“We Need to Talk was developed by the Federation and its partners in response to a 2016 community needs assessment which found that a significant number of our young people were struggling with sadness, anxiety and depression. Said Todd Krieger, senior planning director at the Jewish Federation and a member of the team that developed the program. “It was created to raise awareness of mental health issues in our community, reduce stigma and increase access to services. “

Four years after its inception, the day-to-day operations of the program are now transferred to the Jewish Family Service, so the program can be more closely aligned with a community organization that provides formal behavioral health supports. I, a clinical social worker, have been hired as the coordinator of We Need to Talk, and my perspective and experience as a youth mental health professional will help guide the initiative through its next step.

I have seen with my own eyes how young people today are under immense pressure to fit in and succeed and often feel challenged to meet the high expectations placed on them. But that pressure doesn’t have to be debilitating. We seek to grow and impact more young people in our community by offering engaging programs and events that help them understand the signs of mental illness, coping strategies and the importance of asking for help. help if they are having difficulty.

Transition time

“Since its inception, Jewish Family Service has been an integral part of We Need to Talk and has been an important community partner providing training, program assistance and formal supports,” said Ashley Schnaar, former Youth Mental Health Coordinator who is now associated with the planning of the Federation. “As we continue to work our way through COVID, now is the perfect time to transition the program to JFS, which is well positioned to continue the impactful work that has been started and even take the program to the next level. superior. As the day-to-day operations of the program leave the Federation, we will continue to be involved in program strategy and play a critical role in ensuring that the program is properly funded.

Perry Ohren, CEO of JFS, thanked the Federation for addressing the issue of youth mental health. “JFS is a proud partner of the Federation,” said Ohren. “We will continue to do this vital work alongside the many other community organizations that have worked on it. Together, we can help young people learn to manage their mental well-being and avoid tragic consequences. “

We Need to Talk has made significant progress in achieving its three programmatic pillars: awareness, knowledge and skills, and access. Since its inception, nearly 1,000 community professionals have been trained in mental health and suicide vigilance, more than 5,100 community members have attended 37 events and funding has been secured for more health professionals mental health workers, including social workers in Tamarack camps, school social workers in Jewish schools and yeshivas, and a child psychiatrist at JFS.

“The Federation has done an outstanding job in developing and laying the foundation for this initiative and making a real impact in our community,” said Dini Peterson, program manager at JFS. “We look forward to continuing to partner with the Federation and all the others – from synagogues to day schools to camps – who have devoted so much time and effort to this vital initiative. It is essential that we ensure that the mental health needs of our young people are taken into account.
