NEW: MACC Zooms In On: Managing Our Mental Health in a Persistent Pandemic
We're all doing our best to navigate the emotional whiplash of a pandemic that feels permanently in flux. We’ve been relying on "surge capacity" to carry us through (that temporary burst of energy and clarity you pull on in a crisis), but what happens when that fresh start you were counting on continues to be just out of reach?
Join MACC and NAMI MN, Monday, October 18th from 2 - 3 pm for a MACC Zooms In session focused on giving us strategies to realistically manage the mental health impacts of a persistent pandemic without becoming permanently pessimistic. As human services professionals who continue to be on the front-lines of the concurrent health, economic, and racial justice crises facing our communities, it’s critical that our mental health needs are acknowledged and addressed.
