Project Hope Overview
The pandemic has not been easy for many of us. Missed celebrations and milestones, social distancing, and stress have taken their toll on mental health and it is okay to ask for help.
Crossroads of Western Iowa’s Project Hope, a series of free mental health support sessions and Q&As led by world-renowned speakers, will help you discover ways to cope with the impacts of Covid-19, whether that is staying connected while socially distant, overcoming compassion fatigue, dealing with vicarious trauma and the loss of normalcy, or taking ownership of your time and building resiliency while everything feels out of control.
By coming together to ask questions and discuss positive mental health habits, we will be reminded that what we are facing is a shared experience and we can help each other and ourselves through it.
The virtual sessions, held throughout December and January, will each be two hours long and led by leaders in their fields. Project Hope’s speakers have been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, TODAY, Rachael Ray, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, CBS Sunday Morning, ABC World News Tonight, TLC, TEDx, and more. Speakers will touch on issues of particular importance to three groups: first responders; essential workers; and students.
You can find more information on each group, including the full list of speakers, their bios, and presentation descriptions, by clicking on a group.
All sessions are free and open to the public.
