March 2021 marks one year since our collective way of life was uprooted by COVID-19. Many of us are struggling with the onslaught of news, childcare, isolation, grief, and added stress of trying to find our footing in an unstable environment. Together, we are all grieving something, and that grief takes on different meaning to each person.

Join us for a free Say It Brave Masterclass with Lara Effland LCSW,CEDS, Robyn Cruze, Mimi Cole, and Patrick Devenny to learn tools for navigating our grief and caring for our mental health.

Providers will learn how to use evidence-based treatments such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Radically Open DBT, Exposure and Response Prevention, and Behavioral Activation to support clients.

Individuals who are personally struggling with grief, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, PTSD, and other mental health issues will gain valuable support and free resources designed by our speakers. While we may not have a vaccine for our mental health, with the right resources and community, we can heal.
