Health, Equity, & Resilience.  

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global shared traumatic experience that disrupts
and affects our families, friends, and communities.  

In NYC and nationally, people of color are disproportionally affected by
COVID-19. To address the mental health challenges brought by the pandemic and
structural racism in our City, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
will provide a free virtual presentation on topics including grief, trauma,
coping, and resilience, in addition to mental health tips. Patrons will enter
a safe space to discuss the effects of the pandemic and learn about coping
skills and relevant resources.  

Please register online at the following link: If you have any difficulty registering, please call (646) 874- 4653.
Registration is limited and spots will be assigned on a first come, first
serve basis. This program will be hosted on Webex and can be accessed using a
computer, tablet, or phone. Please contact
[email protected] with
any questions regarding the program.
