Building Resilience in an Anxious World
Thursday, November 4th, 7:15-8:30pm in the church sanctuary
Speaker: Lyn Unger
In a recent study by the BCCDC, they found that young adults demonstrated increased mental health and substance abuse concerns following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Similar results have been shown across North America for youth and preteens.
