A Friday (April 30) Dinner Concert featuring the Imperial Glee Club will benefit Bear River Mental Health’s Recovery Program and specifically the Bear River House. Callie Hoth is a Behavioral Management Specialist at the Bear River House. “The Bear River House is a program that helps adults recover from mental illness,” said Hoth. “They come to the house during the day and we teach them skills. It’s a way for them to socialize and a chance for them to get out of the house so they’re not so isolated. “We usually have 14 on hand for our groups in the morning. We serve 30 to 35 for lunch.” Hoth said there are three levels of activity at the Bear River House. “We have the Foundations Group for those that might be in a group home or just coming out of the hospital, and struggling with a lot of symptoms. Then we have the Gateway Program for those who are doing a little bit better and aren’t so symptomatic. The other is the Transitions Group. We offer that in the evening. It is for people ready to either get back in the workforce or start to integrate more into volunteer work or back into the community.” Hoth said Bear River Mental Health provides most of the funding for Bear River House. The Dinner Concert fundraiser starts at 6 p.m. Friday at the Bear River House, 88 West 1000 North, Logan. Tickets are $10 per person, $16 per couple.
