2022 – Here we come!

We are grateful for the enduring support we have received since our inception in December of 2013 from our unwavering Board of Directors, our generous donors, and the hundreds of individuals who attend our seminars & events annually.  We strive to bring you entertaining, enriching & affordable learning opportunities; support our artists living well with mental health issues by sharing and selling their art; and employ individuals living well with mental health conditions.  We offer hundreds of Continuing Education credits for mental health professionals annually.  Please visit often and spread the word!  Mental health is everyone’s business!

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.

Thanks to all of you and the magic of Zoom, we had another great year:

  • In 2021 we developed dozens of brand new self study & zoom-live-in-person seminars, and presented five CONNECTING DOTS series. We provided thousands of Continuing Education contact hours, to hundreds of mental health professionals all over NY State. We welcomed psychologists to our 2021 learning seminars.

  • We will provide self study and hybrid seminars (self study + Zoom-live-in-person) forever more, so that mental health professionals can conveniently join us from far and near. It is our hope to return to our live-in-person mid-town conference room space in the Spring of 2022.

  • We have kept our promise not to raise the prices of our seminars, nor compromise the quality of our work.

  • I continue to devour hundreds of new movies every year in search of the precious few that will inspire new subjects. 

  • In 2021, we have created more new seminars and reprised old favorites.

  • I was honored that my one-woman show BIPOLAR & THE ENGLISH CHANNEL was presented Off-Broadway November 3rd and 16th, 2021 by the International United Solo Theater Festival.  

  • For the SIXTH straight year in a row, thanks to grants, donations, tuitions, and your unflagging support – we hit break even.
