The Emotional Impact of COVID-19, April 2020

AWNY is here for you, to support you, as we are living with uncertainty. The certainty is that we can still meet and have a conversation. 

AWNY invites you to join AWNY member and licensed Mental Health Counselor, Susie Lang (LMHC & NCC), for the Emotional Impact of COVID-19: Shared Conversations and Connection event series.

This is an opportunity to listen, share and support the emotional effect of the current COVID-19 health crisis. This event is a little different, the certainty is that we can still meet and have a conversation through Zoom. It is still a hands-on, interactive experience, where courageous sharing, vulnerability and empathetic listening will be a big part of this experience. 

How are you feeling? 

  • I am feeling a lot of grief on many different levels
  • It’s temporary and it doesn’t feel like it
  • I feel a loss around normality for myself and beyond
  • I fear my professional stability, the economic toll
  • I feel a lot of pain
  • I fear personal pressure, relationships
  • I feel the tremendous distance from my homeland, Australia
  • How about you?
