Coping with the challenges of the Covid pandemic has brought many new words, concepts and misconceptions into our lives.
But rising almost uncontested to the top of our things-to-deal-with is the not new but now greatly-sharpened focus on mental health. Mental health, always with us in one way or another before the pandemic, has assumed a mainstream urgency as we prepare to re-enter what may or may not be our (new) normal orbit.
Pete Farlam (K, 1987, right) is a clinical psychologist and head of the Bishops Support Unit. He will be our guest at this virtual fireside, talking about what we mean by mental health, the scope of mental health, demystifying some myths and taboos and how to recognise and approach mental health issues, whether our own or people close to us. Not all mental health challenges are pandemic-related and so this talk will cover mental health generally, both as it affects adults and children.
There is no charge to attend the talk which takes place via Zoom on Tuesday 15th June at 6pm (UK)/7pm (SA) and will last an hour..
