MACo’s Winter Series includes content directly aimed at solving common governance and administrative challenges.

Kaiser Permanente, a MACo Gold Corporate Partner, will host a pre-recorded session on supporting mental health strategies you can use for your county.
An Epidemic within the Pandemic: Supporting Community Mental Health in the Age of Coronavirus
Description: Even before the coronavirus swept the globe, America was reckoning with a mental health crisis. Now, stress, uncertainty, fear, and anxiety about COVID-19 — along with other societal traumas of 2020 — pose new threats to mental health. As more focus is placed on mental health, communities are embracing new opportunities to support the mental health and emotional well-being for their population. Join this session to explore:
- How relationships have fundamentally changed, and how employers are working to build trust with employees by helping them through this challenging time.
- Challenges for remote, hybrid, and in-person workforces, including working parents and homeschooling, being a caregiver, productivity, and burnout.
- The evolving conversation around mental health and the workplace in the age of COVID-19.
Date/Time: Wednesday, December 2 at 11:00 – 12:00 pm (pre-recorded)
Speaker: Julie Isaacs, Interim Regional Director, Behavioral Health, Kaiser Permanente
