The Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting economic recession have negatively affected many people’s mental health and created new barriers for people already suffering from mental illness. To address the mental health challenges and inequity caused by Covid-19, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Mayor’s Equity Task Force are providing a 90-minute virtual presentation entitled COVID -19 Community Conversations: Mental Health, Equity & Resilience.
Covid-19 Community Conversations: Mental Health, Equity & Resilience presentation is free, easy to schedule and intended for groups of 15-20. The material will focus on the recent impact of Covid-19. Some of the topics covered include grief, trauma, anxiety and depressive disorder, and resiliency. Participants will be provided with a safe space to discuss the effects of Covid-19 on their day to day lives and learn relevant coping skills and available mental health resources to New Yorkers.
