ISSUES MANAGEMENT - NOVEMBER
issues management for November was on COVID-19 and mental health. Guest speaker was Eric Reaves, MSW, with Manatee Associates of Counseling and Assessments. We learned that the coronavirus pandemic may be stressful for people and
fear and anxiety about a new disease and what could happen can be overwhelming
and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Public health actions, such as social
distancing, can make people feel isolated and lonely and can increase stress
and anxiety. However, these actions are necessary to reduce the spread of
COVID-19. Coping with stress in a healthy way will make you, the people you
care about, and your community stronger.
Mr. Reaves talked about the
wide range of challenges and struggles in our personal and professional
relationships and reminded us of the great joy and satisfaction and fulfillment
from those relationships. Manatee
Associates of Counseling and Assessments offers effective counseling, therapy
and support services to help restore balance and improve quality of life.
