About the Conference . . . .
COVID 19 has had a significant impact on the mental health of many individuals across the state and country. As the pandemic has progressed, more understanding and awareness has developed in recognizing that each individual’s mental health is as important as their physical health. And often times, mental health and physical health are closely linked together. The discussion will focus on common signs and symptoms of a mental health struggle, things that can be done to promote positive mental health, and normal mental health responses both to the COVID 19 pandemic, as well as to transitions and big life events such as leaving for college.
