Human beings are social creatures, and the isolation caused by sheltering-in-place can impact our mental health. To address these issues and offer some coping tools and resources, OLLI-UA (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) and UArizona Department of Psychiatry are hosting two Zoom webinars this month. Both are at 2 p.m., are free, and feature a question and answer session afterwards.
The July 17 presentation features Banner-University Medicine Psychiatry Faculty:
Patricia Harrison-Monroe, PhD, Associate Professor & Department Vice Chair; Areas of professional interest include health disparities, early intervention for serious mental illness, community education and stigma reduction, as well as public healthcare policy and its effect on at-risk populations.
Gustavo J. Perez, PhD, Assistant Professor & Lead Psychologist at Early Psychosis Intervention Center; Dr. Perez is a certified trauma specialist working with people experiencing serious mental illness.
