Northeastern Minnesota Synod
February Mental Health and Wellness Lunch & Learn
When: Thursday, Feb 8, 12:00 pm -1:00 pm
Title: “CULTIVATING WELL-BEING IN UNCERTAIN TIMES”
With so many stressors and changes–both individual and systemic–facing our world and communities, it is unsurprising that fear, worry, or grief surfaces. In this Lunch and Learn conversation, we will discuss how to support well-being amidst times of grief, uncertainty, or trauma. We will also explore ways to compassionately steady ourselves so we can be present and responsive to our loved ones and communities.
