Join Us as We Pursue Mental Wellness
Mental health as a component of CF care is getting increased attention. Yet it has not reached the same level of acceptance as daily physical regimens (meds, enzymes, mucus clearance) and periodic tune-ups. CFFC’s Education Day program will address two of the hurdles to making emotional care part of the CF routine.
Join us on Wednesday, August 10th for Pursuing Mental Wellness, a virtual conference. Here’s the agenda for the evening:
- 6:15 PM – Login opens
- 6:30 PM – Welcome
- 6:40 PM – Panel discussion: “It’s okay to ask for help”
- 7:30 PM – Messages from our sponsors
- 8:00 PM – Panel discussion: “How do I find help?”
- 8:50 PM – Wrap up
The stigma of mental health care may be a deterrent to seeking assistance. In the opening segment, our panel of individuals living with CF will discuss their experiences with recognizing the need for help and the benefits they have realized. The panel will be introduced on Education Day.
The decision to get emotional support starts the search for the care that best fits your needs. Our panel offers a range of options. The panelists are:
- Amanda Healy, Social Media and Communications Director, Attain Health
- Gillian Mocek, MSW, Community Support Specialist, CF Peer Connect Team
- Stacey Smith, LMSW, Social Worker Mental Health Coordinator, Complex Care Center
In addition to presentations by the panelists, each of the segments will include time for questions and comments from the audience.
As noted above, Education Day will be a virtual conference delivered through Zoom Webinar. You must register to join the program but you can sign up at any time – right up to the start of the event. Click on the button below to register.
