Relating & Responding to Mental Health: Continuing to Cope with COVID-19 – Grow Education Series

20 Oct, 2021

ABLE2 is offering a series of virtual workshops to help families create a safe and secure future for a loved one with a disability.

Workshop Description

This workshop will expand on the material covered in Breanna’s previous webinar. Please note that you do not need to have attended the previous webinar to participate in Relating & Responding to Mental Health: Continuing to Cope with COVID-19.

We will look at the concept of COVID-19 as a trauma and means for continuing to cope with the mental health effects caused by the ongoing pandemic. Participants will gain a greater awareness of their own personal warning signs, as well as those around them and gain tips on how to use active communication to break down stigma and foster connections.

Who should attend?

Parents and caregivers of a loved one with a disability and professionals in the community.
