This October 15th and 16th, Centerstone and other Illinois providers will be taking part in a mental health seminar on crisis recovery.

The seminar is being hosted by the Illinois chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Health will include presentations on challenges facing the mental health care system and ways to provide more comprehensive mental health care to diverse populations.

Centerstone is giving a presentation on trauma recovery, which Grant Coordinator Megan Ragan said is critical because the pandemic has increased the risks of mental health issues.

"The statistics on depression and anxiety and things like that, related to the pandemic and things that have popped up since the pandemic, it shows that there is increased risk of depression, there is increased risk of anxiety," Ragan said.

The seminar is designed for mental health care professionals, those living with mental illness, and their loved ones. It will be held on Zoom, and registration is available online.
