About Community Action’s Social & Emotional Well-Being Webinar Series

Community Action’s four-part Social & Emotional Well-Being Webinar Series features experts in the mental health industry, who will provide vital health/wellness tools and strategies to the communities we serve. While trauma and stress affect those living low-income lives most, if not all of the time, adequately addressing these daily anxieties is of particular importance at this time in history as the coronavirus pandemic and America’s deep-seated social, political, and economic crises continue to disparately affect low-income and BIPOC communities.
