"Post-COVID Realities in Mental Health"

What to Expect

From social isolation and financial uncertainty to grief, anxiety, and depression, the pandemic has brought about unprecedented challenges and stressors that have significantly impacted people’s mental wellbeing.

At this year’s Mental Health Conference, we will explore various ways in which COVID-19 has affected mental health, share strategies for supporting individuals and communities, and discuss ways to promote mental wellness in a post-pandemic world. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from a keynote presenter and choose from a variety of breakout sessions.
