JCC to host mental health, coping forum

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Jefferson Community College’s Voices for Social Change will hold a public forum on mental wellbeing and coping on Thursday, April 29 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. This is a virtual forum and all are welcome to attend.

Mallory Jackson, instructor of human services at JCC, appeared on 7 News at Noon on Wednesday. Watch her interview above.

The forum will encourage people to take a look at their own mental health and wellbeing, how to address negative emotions and where to go to access services and resources to make a difference.

The goal is to share healthy coping skills and self-care strategies.

A panel of local professionals will talk about identifying warning signs of self-harm and how to access mental health services in this situation.

Registration required to attend the event, which is free. Visit SUNYJefferson.edu to sign up.
