Managing Anxiety When the World is Falling Apart

February 9, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Are you or others around you having trouble sleeping? More irritable with friends and family? Feeling more anxious than usual? You are not alone!

Join moderator and member Robin Gibbs as we learn some tools to help you feel more “here” (rather than in the past or the future) and gain some distance from the barrage of thoughts that may be paralyzing you and fueling your anxiety and depression.

Sponsored by Bet Am Shalom’s Refu’at HaNefesh committee which provides peer support, resources, and education to members of BAS who may be experiencing mental health challenges. If you would like to speak with a chevra member who can provide peer support or would like additional resources, contact Karen Dolins, Chevra Chair.
