In this video series, a resource to our community, mental health experts from MMC answer your questions and share thoughts and resources. The effects of COVID-19 have not only taken a physical toll, but have left an invisible mark on our mental wellness. For those who have suffered previously with mental health issues, and for those who find themselves with new feelings of anxiety, stress and fear, this Community Conversation is here to support you.

Don’t miss the chance to hear from our panel of experts:

  • Stan Evanowksi, LCSW, LCADC Director of Behavioral Health Services at MMC
  • Stephanie Petrucha, LCSW Director of Outpatient Behavioral Health at MMC
  • Johnna Malter, MA Child and Family Crisis Clinician at Psychiatric Emergency Screening Services (PESS), MMC
  • Donna Martini, LCSW, EISS Program Director
  • Tia A. Susak BSN, RN

Raising awareness for mental health has always been at the forefront of our efforts, but now especially, it is important to provide our community with information and resources on mental health, as the COVID-19 pandemic has brought on new stresses and anxieties. For many, these are new feelings they may have never had, and it is important for us to provide ways to receive help and make good choices when coping with these stresses.
