Preserving Your Mental Health in a Double Pandemic A WHYY Community Conversation about Stress, Stigma and Self-Care


The stress of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our health and economy, is enough to drive mental health needs off the charts. Meanwhile Philadelphia is also suffering the worst increase in the homicide rate since 2007 with 300 murders, up 33% over the year. These stressors have contributed to the fact that since March 1, 2020, 49% percent of Philadelphia residents report that they or someone in their household has been seriously depressed or anxious.

How can we create an effective practice of mental health self-care that is as widely accepted as the routines we follow for our physical health? Is it possible to practice self-care while anxiously focused on self-preservation?

Join WHYY for a virtual Community Conversation about stressors, stigma and self-care. Hear insights and tips from leading regional experts on preserving your mental health during extensively, stressful times.
