It will also help leaders ask the appropriate questions to consider the impact of trauma in people’s lives. Lastly, it will suggest strategies for how faith and community leaders can respond.

This webinar series will help you consider and prepare for the mental health challenges that may arise during and in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sometimes these emotions increase so much that they need to be addressed with specialized expertise that understands mental health concerns.
