2020 Grantee Meeting Plenary: Mental Health Support for Healthy Start Staff

June 25, 2020

This plenary session will address the real challenges and opportunities that meet us as we strive to accomplish our work during a time of unprecedented public health and social stress. Just as we’ve learned to focus on strengths, coping skills, and resilience with our clients, this is a time to take stock of our own strengths and resources, even as we acknowledge our vulnerabilities. Identifying sources of support and inspiration are essential to be able to maintain and sustain our goals and relationships. How do we keep the purpose and motivation for our work when dealing with such stress and limitations? As we navigate this time, it is essential that we acknowledge and find support for our own needs of mental wellness and resilience.
