what's new

Celebrating our Tenth year of service – 2023!

The Frank Ridge Memorial Foundation, Inc. (a 501(c)3 non-profit) continues to create and facilitate topical new seminars; find inspiring & trailblazing movies as the springboard for lively conversation; and perform our one-woman show BIPOLAR & THE ENGLISH CHANNEL to promote the power of storytelling. Please check out our REGISTRATION FOR EVENTS & SEMINARS page to see what’s on the docket.  

I am proud and honored that a short doc BREATHE – directed by Zac Norrington was selected for presentation by the ReelAbilities Film Festival and streamed from April 27-May 3, 2023. It will play in other cities and be streamable later this year.  (Stay tuned!)  I am equally honored that BIPOLAR & THE ENGLISH CHANNEL is traveling in May for Mental Health Awareness Month to Sharon Mass on Sunday, May 21, 2023 at 7 pm, Temple Israel’s sisterhood. For information go to: www.tisharon.org. And to the Mary D. Fisher Theater in Sedona AZ on May 27 and 28, 4 pm show.

We are forever grateful for our generous donors, our fabulous Board of Directors, and the backbone of our Foundation – the hundreds of you who attend our seminars each year.  I continue to devour hundreds of movies and do copious research in my efforts to bring you entertaining and enriching learning new opportunities.  We have offered thousands of NY SED Approved Continuing Education contact hours for mental health professionals annually and plan to do so for many years to come.

The Frank Ridge Memorial Foundation, Inc. is proud to be recognized by the New York State Education Department’s State Board’s Office of the Professions as an approved provider of Continuing Education contact hours (CEs) for all NY licensed Social Workers (#SW-0096), Mental Health Counselors (#MHC-0010), Marriage & Family Therapists (#MFT-0014), Psychoanalysts (#P-0018), creative arts therapists (#CAT-0065), and Psychologists (#PSY-0009).  For more information about Continuing Education go to the New York State Office of the Profession’s website at: www.op.nysed.gov/prof/.  Click on your profession’s Continuing Education tab for more information.
