Topic: Community Mental Health During the Holidays

As we come closer to starting a third year of the world-wide COVID epidemic, we continue to deal with such stressors as illness and death; job insecurity and loss; social isolation; and media disinformation, climate change, and political polarization. Related symptoms of mental health issues continue at elevated levels, including depression, anxiety, alcoholism, drug overdose and domestic violence.

However, there are things we can all do, individually and collectively, to make a positive difference in our own wellness and in the wellbeing of our communities. In this 90 minute community conversation, scheduled in the middle of our upcoming holiday season, we will gather to talk about our experiences and about what we can all do to use our current challenges as opportunities for self-care, growth, and service to others.

More information on conversations:

This virtual conversation conducted over Zoom will be a 90 minute guided dialogue with all participants getting the chance to offer opinions or ask questions. 

Participants must register for the conversation beforehand in order to receive instructions and the Zoom link the day before the event.

We emphasize that these conversations are not debates, town halls, lectures, or presentations - rather, it is a dialogue in which everyone who attends has an equal voice. At the beginning of each conversation we ask everyone to agree to follow certain conversation agreements allowing for a respectful and confidential experience.
