We all experience ups and downs in life. But since COVID-19 arrived, we’ve felt those lows more intensely… and many of us have lost hope. In light of the unique challenges the pandemic has posed, this talk will explore various types of depression, its causes, and possible treatments. Dr. James Manganello (PhD Boston University, Master of Public Health Harvard University, Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress) will explain how recovery is possible, and why we can still hope for the future.
This talk was hosted by our young adult ministry Social Life, intended for all ages!
