Coping with Stress and Depression: Strategies for Families

Coping with Stress and Depression Strategies for Families

How’s your family managing these days? Families experience a number of stressors every day. Stress occurring from finances, managing schedules, and meal planning may be predictable, but that doesn’t make it any easier. You may be feeling at a loss for how to cope. Add on special circumstances—like your loved one actively serving in the military or being a veteran who is having trouble adjusting to civilian life—and the level of stress may feel unbearable. How can you help yourself and your loved ones to manage stress and be mentally healthy together? During our family-focused 1-hour Coping with Stress and Depression webinar, you will learn how to manage stress and identify depression in yourself and others. This webinar features Dr. Liza Zwiebach of the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program and Emory University School of Medicine, who shares insights from her work with families, including supporting veterans, and offers a variety of resources and coping strategies for all families.
