While the COVID-19 pandemic technically still rages on, many clinicians and researchers are already looking back over the past two years to discover what lessons we can learn—and how this shared experience has impacted our collective mental health.
A new online webinar will explore caregiver mental health specifically and how the caregiving community across the country can work together to heal and move forward. “How the Pandemic Impacted Caregiver’s Mental Health” will be held Tuesday, May 3 at 11 a.m. EDT (10 a.m. CDT) and is free to attend.
“We’ve all struggled during these past two years at times,” the program description reads, “but new research has highlighted just how the pandemic has affected informal family caregivers.”
The event will be led by Elliot Montgomery Sklar, PhD, MS, and Lucy Barylak, MSW. Sklar is a public health professional and an associate professor in the Department of Health Science at Nova Southeastern University. Barylak is a social gerontology consultant with West-Central Montreal Health in Montreal, Canada.
The program is hosted by the WellMed Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit organization established in 2006 that offers programs for seniors and caregivers. The foundation is the philanthropic partner of WellMed Medical Management.
