Depression and Anxiety in the Time of CoVid: A Mental Health Support Group

Do you struggle to get out of bed in the morning?  Do you fear leaving the house because you simply can’t face what might be out there?  Living with depression and anxiety can be incredibly painful, even on “good” days.  If you struggle with these form day to day, then chances are you are facing unique challenges  during the CoVid-19 Pandemic.  Life that felt unmanageable before is likely feeling even more out of control and frightening.  Resources once available may no longer be there.  Those few places you felt safe may no longer be accessible.  And those few activities that you enjoyed may no longer be an option. Now, more than ever, it is easy to feel isolated and alone, like no one understands or knows what you are going through.  

The goal of this support group is to let you know that you are not alone and there are ways you can continue to manage you depression and anxiety during these turbulent times.  Our panel of mental health providers will include psychiatrists and psychologists who will provide a brief overview of topics for discussion.  We will then open up to questions and discussion from the audience.  Participation is optional.  Video and audio can be turned off to maintain confidentiality if desired.  

Please note that while our staff will be facilitating these groups, participation of our staff does not constitute the establishment of a therapeutic relationship with the group members. In our role as facilitators, we are not acting as psychiatrist or therapist to any of the individuals who chose to join any of the group sessions. We can provide useful educational information that draws on our training and expertise, but we will not be providing therapy or medical advice specific to anyone’s individual circumstances.
