Communities Respond to COVID-19 with Innovative High-impact Strategies
April 23, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This NNED Virtual Roundtable series will highlight issues associated with COVID-19, including:
– Unique experiences of individuals in underserved communities;
– Strategies for providing culturally and linguistically appropriate health information; and
– Specific actions taken by select NNED communities to deliver high-impact and easy to implement approaches that support behavioral health needs.
COVID-19 brings new health, economic and social crises on a daily basis. These crises especially affect lower-income, ethnic minority communities with job loss, food insecurity, and poorer access to health care. Information overload and cultural and linguistic gaps in information exacerbate anxiety, confusion, and uncertainty. National conversations underscore the growing need for mental health and emotional supports for individuals, families and providers across all populations.
