May 24, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until August 31, 2023
In the midst of the COVID19 pandemic life has been harder than ever. Usual resources have become scarce, stress has increased tremendously, and our lives have been turned upside down. The last year has taken its toll on people’s physical and mental health resulting in a rise in attempted suicide and/or an unanticipated psychiatric hospitalizations. As people with disabilities and family members, it is important to know we are not alone and that there are things we can do to take care of ourselves and others. Join Dr. Julie Gentile, chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Wright State University, and Connie McLaughlin, Regional Manager Supervisor in DODD’s Major Unusual Incident (MUI) Unit, for a conversation in caring for yourself and others. We’ll discuss the latest data, explore case scenarios, provide tips for suicide prevention, and have a question and answer session with our speakers.
