In the face of a pandemic like COVID-19, it is more important than ever to exercise vigilance around our mental well-being and the mental well-being of those around us. The uncertainty, social isolation and sometimes sudden and unexpected changes to normal routines, relationships with others, and work and home environments can be especially triggering to those already vulnerable to the effects of anxiety and depression.

During this one-hour wellness session participants will:
• Increase awareness of anxiety and depression and understand why it is important to be able to recognize symptoms
• Learn ways to tell if they or someone they know may be suffering from anxiety or depression
• Learn strategies to manage anxiety and depression and increase well-being and effectiveness both during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond
