On Tuesday, April 21, more than 300 participants joined Baltimore for our first-ever virtual event, Community Conversations: Navigating Emotional Wellness During Uncertain Times. Partners Sheppard Pratt and NAMI Metro Baltimore joined us, along with Dr. Todd Peters and Dr. Brad Piergrossi, to share how to take care of yourself and others along with the best means of coping with anxiety, depression, and isolation. You can view our full discussion below.
