Course Description: As we reflect on the past two-plus years living with the pandemic, there has been disruption, uncertainty, and prolonged exhaustion which may have impacted your emotional wellbeing. Across the Midwest levels of anxiety and depression have remained three times higher than pre-pandemic levels. As we continue to better understand the impact of prolonged ups and downs in our lives , we want to help you look at strategies to assist and help those who are especially vulnerable. This training will help you learn how you can support healthy dialogue, address stigma and promote emotional wellbeing.
