A Collaboration of the Colorado School of Public Health and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science

For many Americans, the stresses of COVID-19 extend well beyond the virus itself. We may be feeling isolated after months of physical distancing, fearful for our own personal safety, or anxious about household finances and the state of the economy. Frustration, helplessness, depression, exhaustion, anger, grief ─ our emotions can run the gamut, and no two people will ever navigate trauma in quite the same way. Mental health is a difficult subject, one that’s often uncomfortable to broach even with those we’re closest with. But even as the country works to bring the coronavirus under control from an epidemiological perspective, medical caregivers caution that we cannot ignore the long-lasting psychological effects of living through a world-altering pandemic. So what can we do to help ourselves, our families, and our neighbors arrive at healthy outcomes during this period of extreme stress and uncertainty?

Please join us on Monday, August 10 at 8:30 a.m. for an exploration of mental health, wellness, and community resilience in the age of COVID-19 with Mercedez Lang and Michelle Tijerina, both practitioners and ambassadors for the Healthy Living Team at the Mental Health Center of Denver. They’ll discuss recent trends and data surrounding mental health, strategies to stay connected with others during times of change, and other educational enrichment opportunities that are available as we navigate the new normal.

This free public webinar is a collaboration of the Colorado School of Public Health, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and the Institute for Science & Policy. The session will also be streamed on Facebook Live.
