Mental Health Self-Care

Creative Health & Wholeness

If you missed the Webinar, we have the recording here until October 21, 2021.

Covid-19 has certainly made the concept of health top-of-mind for most of us this past year (or is it decade?) and more. And the concept of health includes far more than merely the narrow medical aspect of surviving this particular virus.

Our mental, emotional and financial health are tested daily. We need information, tools, resources, and experiences to enable us to not just survive Covid, but to live our lives with the health and wholeness we desire as creative spirits.

Chicago Creative Coalition is dedicating this program year to bringing opportunities for creative health and wholeness forward.

Practicing & Promoting Mental Health Self-Care
This 1-hour webinar with NAMI Chicago – co-sponsored with APA Chicago – will highlight the current challenges to mental health posed by Covid-19. We will dive into concepts of wellness, individual self-care, and community care. In addition, participants will learn about self-care strategies to utilize for themselves and others.
