Resiliency for Behavioral Health and Addiction Treatment Professionals

Tuesday, May 26, 2020  6:00 – 7:15 PM (AZ)

With Dr. Dara Rampersad & Liz Bradley

Dear Friends:

These are trying times for all workers, to be sure. Behavioral health and addiction professionals, in particular, are under unprecedented stress and facing a great amount of uncertainty due to the challenges brought to us by COVID-19. There is a greater need than ever for shelters as well as diversion, treatment, and harm reduction programs.

The professionals who operate these crucial services are an incredible testament to the integrity of our society. But remember, you’re only human and you can’t help others if you’re run down. It’s important to take time to recharge and fill your tank. We invite you to join us for one of Arizona’s most sought-after speakers on stress management and crisis intervention, so that you can stay strong and keep being the heroes that you are.

Registration is required.  You can register here or contact me.  I will send you the Zoom link to join this meeting the night before the event.
