Happy Hour in Isolation: Addiction Concerns During Crisis

Thursday, June 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Just as our frontline caregivers need to have the right kind and quantity of Personal Protective Equipment (or PPE), we all need appropriate and healthy methods to protect our emotional well being while practicing physical distancing. Join NAMI Central Texas and Cedric R Dunmore, MA, LCDC, as we address the addiction concerns that arise during crisis and how to support ourselves or loved ones in this difficult time.

Mind Matters at Home, presented by Ascension Seton, brings mental health experts and advocates straight into your home to share valuable information and tools for deepening our community’s understanding and managing of mental health during the challenging situation caused by the coronavirus.
