Montgomery County is holding a free online event, discussing mental health and the COVID-19 pandemic, on Wednesday, Feb. 10 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
The conversation will focus on the different types of grief those in the community have endured over this past year, how to cope and move forward.
This video event is one in a series developed by the county. The program, Wellness Community Events: Healing and Holding On-One Conversation at a Time for the Community, focuses on addressing mental wellness in the community as the pandemic has exacerbated not just physical but mental health just as much.
The framework of the workshop will have participants share the different types of loss they have experienced through the pandemic. Participants then will view their loss through the scope of grief and be taught steps to manage and move forward.
The exercise will be guided by Sarah Moore, MA and LCSW-C, a therapist with the County’s Department of Health and Human Services, Behavioral Health and Crisis Services.
The virtual meetings are held every other Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The events are free and open to the public and no registration is required. Join the conversation on Teams Live at https://bit.ly/wellness-community-5 or view it live on County Cable Montgomery and the County’s Facebook page.
Join us on Wednesday, Feb. 10 for an online conversation focused on Grieving What We Lost in 2020 and Finding Ways to Move Forward in 2021. @MontgomeryCoMD
