Events happening thousands of miles away impact the lives of Metro Detroiters, fueling stress and anxiety in a community that has already endured a pandemic. To help tri-county residents, Macomb County Community Mental Health (MCCMH) hosted a roundtable discussion of the emotional, mental and physical toll that conflict, near or far, can create and offer strategies to successfully address it. The roundtable was held at the Ukrainian Cultural Center located at 26601 Ryan Road in Warren Wednesday, March 2, 2022.
Seven area mental healthcare professionals were joined by Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, discussing stress and anxiety, how it impacts each person, and when & where to seek help addressing those challenges.
Audio and video material from the roundtable will be made available soon and this page will be updated to include that information as it becomes available:
