Covid Trauma: The Impact and Legacy on Communities
01 Feb 2022
07:00pm - 08:30pm
In This Together – Session 3
Delivered by Conor McCafferty, Zest: Healing the Hurt Ltd
This session is not a political discussion on the rights or wrongs of lockdown but will examine the mental health effects the pandemic continues to have on individuals and communities.
It will focus on:
• the elements of the lockdown
• the effects of these on our mental health
• how we need to cope, as we hopefully come out of lockdown
• the importance of self-care now
