For Louisiana and communities across the country, daily life has changed in ways that are hard to fully grasp, particularly given the uncertainty of how things will unfold in the coming weeks and months.
Town Hall Meetings
The fourth town hall, The Pandemic: What Now?, focused on vaccine safety and continuing deployment, well as the emotional and mental impacts of the ongoing pandemic.
The third town hall, COVID Vaccines: What You Need to Know. NOW!, focused on providing important information to concerned citizens about the COVID-19 vaccines.
The second Town Hall, Vaccination Conversation, focused on the latest information regarding the new COVID-19 vaccines, as well as a look at rural healthcare in Louisiana.
In our first Town Hall, Surviving the Surge, we focused on coping tips for maintaining physical and mental wellness, how to keep calm and fight stress, and what you need to know about vaccines.
Louisiana, COVID-19 has affected everyone of us from every walk of life, and every person has been affected in many different ways. Here are a few stories from your fellow citizens relating how they are coping with COVID-19. Tell us how you are reaching out, and staying well. We will be posting videos on our social media, and here on our site.
Responding to COVID-19 has exposed the need for new and innovative approaches to behavioral health service delivery, as we prepare to learn to live with what may be a longer than expected period of physical distancing measures. “Conquer COVID-19 Together” will provide survivors with information and education about typical reactions, helpful coping strategies and available disaster related resources to meet emerging and ongoing social wellbeing and emotional care.
