Come learn about stress inoculation and managing your mental health during an ongoing crisis from Dr. Karla Vermeulen, the deputy director of the Institute of Disaster Mental Health. The anniversary of the pandemic has come and gone, and it’s been a hard year. 41% of adults are reporting symptoms of anxiety or depression. You’re not alone. The good news is there are ways of fostering resilience, gaining peace, and finding joy even during hardship. We hope you will join us for this webinar led by the Institute for Disaster Mental Health, based at SUNY New Paltz, Millbrook Library will facilitate this joint collaboration with a number of other libraries in the Mid-Hudson Library System.
There will be a presentation and time for questions with Dr. Vermeulen during the hour.
