Honoring "Mental Stealth” and "Mental Wealth:" Can This Sneak Attack of COVID19 Make Us Smarter?
Tuesday, May 10th | 12:00 - 1:00 PM
Presented: Avalon Events Center OR Virtual
Speaker: Gail Nelson
We will never be the same after living through a pandemic experience. Our world has changed, our jobs have changed, and we are different human beings than we were before Covid19 pressed in on us. It is easy to believe that 100% of the population is experiencing depression and anxiety with evidence being use of mental health services up 600%. In the US, we are carrying the collective grief of 1 million deaths (6 million worldwide) and exposure to a news cycle that is bringing crisis and war into our daily lives. How can we honor this pain and grief and yet, learn, grow, and become wiser? I wish I had all the answers to this complex equation. We will explore it together.
