A Closer Look: Mental Health and Resilience within the Disability Community during COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an impact on our lives and our mental health. Many people are experiencing heightened anxiety, social, and physical disconnection from others and ongoing concerns. Some unique challenges and surprising outcomes have emerged within the disability community. While many people with disabilities have faced considerable social and mental health challenges, others have reported experiencing increased inclusion and more connectedness than before. This webinar will explore various factors for understanding the mental health and resilience of people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic from their perspective. Discussion will also center on how service providers can access resources to support their services all while learning how to recognize the signs of mental health difficulties within the disability community. Participants will receive tips, resources, and guidance for improving mental health and building resilience as we collectively navigate this challenging time.

Participants will be eligible for CEUs from the AAC Institute and CRCs from the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC).

Webinars are presented through Zoom. Captions and American Sign Language will be available. All webinars are recorded and the archive, transcript, accessible presentation, as well as additional handouts will be made available within one week of the live webinar.
