Mental Health in a Pandemic: A Conversation for Leaders
Mental health challenges in this time
One of the many challenges that our faith community leaders are facing is the rising needs around mental health. Many of us are working to be supportive of those in our communities who are struggling with this issue, or perhaps dealing with our own mental health needs. The global pandemic, along with our recent national crisis around racial injustices, has only elevated this reality of increased stress, anxiety and uncertainty. The more we can do to be supportive and provide resources to each other, the healthier we will be together.
A Conversation with Mental Health Professionals For You
We have enlisted the support of three mental health experts from around the country to be our panelists for a Zoom Conference on Monday, July 13th at 1:30 PM Central Time. Our panelists will be sharing from their particular experiences, as well as discussing some proactive ways faith communities can engage this need.
We invite you to join us for this Zoom Conference. There is no charge for the conference. We are simply asking that each participant make a donation to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). You can find out more about this organization at their website.
Join this critical conversation Monday July 13, 1:30pm CT.
Please register for the event. We have limited space for this conference so please register early.
Here is some information about our panelists:
Lynne Silva-Breen is a Minnesota Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)
Lisa Goodwin is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and serves as a Senior Director at the Masonic Center for Youth and Families in the Los Angeles area.
Emily Woodward is a Mental Health Therapist for Riverside Community Care in the Boston area.
We are excited to be able to provide this resource. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out via email. We encourage you to invite your staff and lay leaders to participate in this conference as well as sharing it with whomever you think would want to participate.
