March 2023 — State of Stigma: Mental Wellness of Providers & Families of People with Developmental Disabilities

How do direct service employees, working in a stressful environment, maintain their mental wellness? How can family members seek help and take care of their mental well-being while caring and advocating for their loved ones?

Join the Anti-Stigma Coalition for a discussion about these issues and how to access mental health resources. We’ll hear from provider agency representatives and family members who will share about everyday stress and long-term challenges along with coping strategies.
