Webinar: Mental Health in a Time of COVID-19: Preparing Leaders to Address the Challenges

Date: April 28, 2020

Time: 11:00 AM CST


The outbreak of COVID-19 has placed overwhelming stress on people, families, communities, and our nation. Fear and anxiety about an unseen disease can provoke strong emotions in adults and children. Even our friends and neighbors without mental health diagnoses are experiencing increased challenges.

During normal times, many people turn to faith leaders when they have a concern. That’s why some leaders are predicting there will be a wave of people seeking to share their challenges involving the impact of COVID-19. Faith and community leaders can prepare now to be ready to engage the myriad of questions people will have.

The goal of this webinar is to help you understand what research tells us may be coming, the perspective of mental health professionals in this moment, and what faith leaders are preparing to address.
