Coping with Current Events: Managing Anxiety and Stress
March 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
In recent weeks, COVID-19 has been on many of our minds. With there being so much talk about the current events, for some of us, it has understandably increased our anxiety and stress. Our Coping with Current Events series hopes to bring together the community during a time of unknown, to learn and support ourselves and others.
Our online Coping with Current Events: Managing Anxiety and Stress will discuss the impact of the current events on our well-being, what we can do to feel a little more in control, and some options to help manage our feelings of anxiety and stress. Managing your stress and well-being during this time is as important as managing your physical health.
Our goal is for you to leave this online session with at least one tool or piece of knowledge that you can implement right now to “reduce that squeeze” we all feel.
This session will be hosted online, so to join this access to the internet or phone is needed. Instructions on how you can join will be sent once registration is completed.
