Keeping Crisis at Bay for Teens, Adults, and Health Professionals

December 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Hope Center has found that only about 25% of people seeking help during a crisis have an underlying major mental health diagnosis (this includes anxiety and major depression). The CDC has recently published a paper reporting that suicides are not solely connected to mental health diagnosed illnesses, but life stressors. In its simplest terms, this crisis could be seen as times when life shocks (e.g., we lose our apartment and our job, which blows up our childcare) completely overwhelm our coping capacity, which may have been serving us well up to that point. There is some connection to past trauma: those who have successfully processed past trauma may have greater resilience as these stressors pile up. However, even a resilient, healthy person can become overwhelmed. Let’s better understand this dynamic so we can support and take care of each other before we reach a crisis point.  Panelists: Michelle Muething, Executive Director, Hope Center (and specialists on her team) Will Bledsoe Ph.D., The Restorative Way, LLC (national resource on building trauma-responsive communities FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC RSVP: Co-Sponsored by Aspen Real Life
