NCPF is dedicated to helping individuals and our community understand and alleviate problems that lead to emotional suffering and disability and to enhancing their capacity for personal development and improved community functioning. In short, NCPF helps create a more resilient community by helping people have a better understanding of how their words, actions and thoughts can affect self esteem and happiness. Psychoanalysis helps us understand ourselves and those around us.
By applying psychoanalytic ideas to the issue of bullying, over 500 students are now attending a school free of intimidations and bullying. The EOG scores in our pilot school have increased over 5% in just 2 years. Students can now focus more on learning. Money raised from this race will allow us to continue our outreach activities including Peaceful Schools-NC (our evidence based, anti-bullying program), monthly newsletters to both the general public and mental health professionals, sponsorships of discussions after movies and PlayMakers plays, scholarships to the Psychoanalytic Education Center of the Carolinas, health fairs at local schools, and much more.
