Webinar: For Better Or Worse? Bridging The Care Continuum For Mental Health Services In Our New Reality

Location: Online Via

Description: Navigating the health care system, particularly mental health services, is a daunting task during ‘normal’ times. Facing the fluidity and uncertainty of a global pandemic presents many new unique challenges to accessing and utilizing health care services, but perhaps also some promising advancements. Combining this environment with the current societal unrest sparked by cultural/racial disparity within our nation adds another layer of complexity to the situation.

Join this distinguished panel of individuals with expertise spanning the arenas of advocacy and peer support, burnout and suicide prevention, and resilience and wellness as they discuss their roles within the current health care system. They will share insights into the obstacles and opportunities presented by the novel coronavirus pandemic and their perspectives on how we can all fight to end cultural, racial, and other types of disparity in our nation, covering the good, the bad, the ugly, and the potential for those living with a mental health condition to thrive in our ‘new normal’ health care landscape.
