Supporting Mental Health in COVID-19 Webinar

Supporting Mental Health in COVID-19 Webinar: During this uncertain time, mental health is more important than ever for all of us – especially families that may be experiencing increased social or financial stress. At the same time, keeping each other safe means not meeting face-to-face, which can often feel like such an important part of supporting mental health. We are excited to partner with Mia Edidin from Perinatal Support Washington to offer a webinar focused on supporting family mental health during this time of COVID-19. We encourage both home visitors and supervisors to attend. We will have ample time for Q&A, so come prepared with questions! If you cannot make it, the webinar will be recorded and shared widely. This webinar will cover:

  • Making sense of common emotional responses to fear, stress, and crisis
  • Supporting family mental health and wellness virtually
  • Virtual PHQ-9 screening and response
  • Information on virtual mental health resources
  • Supporting our own mental health and wellness
