2020 has been a year like no other, challenging our mental health on many levels. When we combine stress and depression from the pandemic with winter blues (or seasonal affective disorder) and a very different holiday season, this winter will likely be difficult for many. The good news – there are evidence-based strategies, tools, and activities to help boost your mental health and well-being during these unprecedented times.
Join Integral Care and NAMI Central Texas from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm on Thursday, December 3rd for a virtual community forum that will offer resources to support your mental health throughout the season. Panelists include:
- Dr. Calvin Kelly, former Dean and Professor at St. Edwards University in Austin and licensed mental health professional
- Valerie Milburn, NAMI Central Texas presenter and Communities for Recovery board member
- Wendy Salazar, MA, LPC-S, Integral Care Practice Manager specializing in depression, women and children’s mental health, and trauma
Our panelists will share their insight and practical tips on how to manage seasonal and situational depression, navigate a different type of holiday season and stay connected with loved ones.
Ellen Richards, Integral Care’s Chief Strategy Officer, will moderate the panel. Audience members will have an opportunity to submit questions in advance of the forum (during registration) and ask questions at the end of the discussion.
