You and/or those you love may be feeling the strain and uncertainty the pandemic is causing. Day-to-day routines are being dramatically altered. NOVA Mental Health Foundation supports wellness and recovery for individuals living with Serious Mental Illness. We recognize the urgent need for a program on coping with these new stressors.

In this light, we are hosting Taking Care of your Mental Health in Challenging Times.

Michael Lane, Director, Individual and Family Affairs, Fairfax Falls Church Community Services Board will guide our discussion. At the Community Services Board, Michael leads and coordinates peer support services across the system. He is the chief peer voice for the system of 23,000 clients with mental health conditions, substance abuse concerns, and/or developmental/intellectual delays.

Michael is an engaging and motivating leader and speaker. . .one who will brighten your day and give you nuggets to chew on for days to come. He will be answering questions like:

  • What do you suggest for people who are just having trouble accepting the situation?
  • If you are feeling overwhelmed with everything in your life, where is a good place to start in terms of feeling more in charge of your life?
  • How do you know when your feelings or what you are saying to yourself is not normal but indicates that you need to seek out support in the community?

If you can not attend we would love for you to donate. We support wellness and recovery for individuals living with Serious Mental Illness. We need you help more than ever before. The Washington Post cited texts to the federal government mental health hotline is up roughly 1000% and 50% of Americans have reported a worsening of mental health since sheltering in place. We have cancelled in-person events and are relying exclusively on online donations to do the critical work needed in our community.
