Redding Record Searchlight

In a move to reach out to the community, Shingletown Medical Center has opened a Wellness Center at Black Butte Elementary School where it will offer support groups and programs pertaining to fitness, nutrition and socialization.

Community members already are signing up for programs fast.

The first class the center is offering is a support group that addresses isolation and depression.

“It’s huge up here. A lot of people have social phobias,” said Kelly Bullan, case manager at Shingletown Medical Center. “With that comes depression and isolation, especially among the elderly.”
