COVID-19 Community Conversations: Mental Health, Equity & Resilience
Wednesday, February 24, 2021, 9:30 – 11 a.m. End times are approximate. Events
may end early or late.
In partnership with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Roosevelt
Island library is proud to present COVID-19 Community Conversations: Mental
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.
