Hello, Don’t forget to sign up today for the new one-hour virtual presentation that addresses the impacts of COVID 19 on mental health at https://manhattan_covidconvo.timetap.com/. The COVID- 19 pandemic is a shared traumatic experience that has disrupted life in our city and communities. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Mayor’s Equity Task Force are providing a 60 minute virtual presentation entitled COVID-19 Community Conversations: Mental Health, Equity & Resilience, focused on mental health during the pandemic to New Yorkers in the areas hardest hit by COVID-19. The COVID-19 Community Conversation includes topics of grief, trauma, coping and resilience and mental health tips. Participants enter a safe space to discuss the effects of this pandemic and learn relevant coping skills and available resources. Additionally, in connection with the presentation, we will offer a 3-hour certified virtual training in the fall. Participants will learn concrete steps to manage their mental health during the pandemic and ways to help fellow New Yorkers.  We will be sharing additional information and opening up registration for this training in the coming weeks! We encourage you to participate in this free virtual presentation.
