On Thursday, December 10, at 6 p.m., the Metropolitan Human Services District (MHSD) is hosting #GetYaMindRight, a virtual discussion panel focusing on mental health and surviving the pandemic, in collaboration with the Office of Behavioral Health and the Mental Health Association for Greater Baton Rouge. MHSD's mission is "to ensure that person-centered support and services are available and are provided to eligible individuals with mental illness, addictive disorders, and intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in Orleans, Plaquemines, and St. Bernard parishes." Considering MHSD's mission and their extensive knowledge of mental health, this webinar will be extremely helpful and insightful.

#GetYaMindRight highly encourages millennials, college students, and anyone else in younger generations to join this discussion, as it offers the opportunity to share feelings and difficulties that are side effects of the global pandemic. In the midst of a socially distant world, this is a great way to gather and build community.

This COVID-centered panel will be moderated by WDSU Anchor and Reporter Christina Watkins and will feature specialists Rashia Govan, Ph.D.; Danielle K. Wright, Ph.D.; attorney and advocate Jennifer Coco; writer and artist L. Kasimu Harris; award-winning chef Nina Compton; and entrepreneur Minh Nguyen. These professionals will create an enlightening discussion about how to best take care of your mental health in a time when everyone feels distant, isolated, and alone.

The three goals of this seminar are to learn, cope, and survive, which are skills we should all be equipped with for the rest of the road ahead. The Zoom webinar ID is 861 4061 6509, and the passcode is 339192. Join this webinar for an intimate and vulnerable conversation about the struggles and challenges we have all faced in this exponential shift from a real world to a virtual one. The webinar is scheduled from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
