10:30 a.m.: Step by Step – Covid-19 Essential Workers Support Group – LIVE
The Project was developed after gathering insight from mental health practitioners, medical providers, and other essential personnel (cashiers, restaurant employees, truck drivers, etc) who share the unique stressors mentally and emotionally related to serving and treating individuals on the frontlines of COVID-19.
Upon further research, other associations and mental health corporations are providing support groups similar to the proposed modality above, however, few specifically for professionals treating those with COVID-19. Furthermore, other associations such as the American Society of Addiction Medicine, are not only promoting the importance of the utilization of online support groups, but outlines support group etiquette. MHAPA is a statewide, proactive organization. As such, this project will be offered throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
Starting Wednesday May 13, 2020, individuals can register by visiting www.mhapa.org/communitysupport
2:30 p.m.: MOVE it Forward, Perfect Vision 20/20 – LIVE
What is a vision board? What should it look like? How do I involve youth in this process? All these questions and more will be answered at our Vision Sessions, hosted by Youth MOVE National staff. We will walk through ways to participate in this year’s Children’s Mental Health Awareness campaign and create your own vision board.
Join Zoom Meeting.
