(Ventura, California) Many people struggled with mental health challenges during this last year, often exacerbated by lock downs, isolation, new stresses, and societal turmoil. As American society now slowly transitions to more “normal times,” Community Memorial Health System is helping families find ways to cope and move forward.
The public is invited to join CMHS psychologists at a free online seminar as they discuss the current mental health crisis and the deep impact of COVID-19 on families. Participants will learn coping strategies as they prepare to transition back to school, work, and other normal routines during uncertain times.
The free virtual seminar takes place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 22. To attend, please RSVP at www.cmhshealth.org/RSVP. This event is hosted by Community Memorial Health System as part of its 2021 Speaker Series Online. Participating psychologists include Dr. Ronda Doonan, director of Behavioral Health and Resident Well-Being for CMHS’ Graduate Medical Education; Dr. Shirah Bale, who specializes in behavioral health and mindful practices for wellness; and Dr. Monique Boswell, a specialist in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Community Memorial Health System is a not-for-profit health system that comprises Community Memorial Hospital, Ojai Valley Community Hospital, a skilled nursing facility, and several primary and specialty care clinics that serve communities throughout Ventura County, California.

A very nice offer. May I suggest that the glue to bringing us back to “normal” is more spiritual than mental or physical. One of the most evil things done by politicians is to separate us from our Churches through lockdowns. Let’s regain our “normal” through our recently reopened spiritual centers.
