It’s Not Just You: Women-Focused Mental Health Panel
May 18, 2021 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
|The COVID-19 pandemic has robbed us of hundreds of thousands of our loved ones, and people are still getting sick every day. Even those of us fortunate enough to avoid getting the virus have had to figure out how to do our jobs, maintain our relationships, and keep a semblance of “normalcy” in our lives.
Women, particularly women of color, have been hit hardest of all. We are getting closer and closer to “normal,” with Chicago set to reopen on July 4—but many of us don’t feel near normal at all.
Let’s talk about it.
This Mental Health Awareness Month, join Chicago NOW on Tuesday, May 18 at 7:00 pm for a virtual panel discussion with four local behavioral health providers, focused on how COVID-19 has changed the mental health landscape—especially for women—and how we can move forward in an uncertain world.
