“Talking about mental health is important, especially during these turbulent times where people can be experiencing increased anxiety and isolation,” Evans said in a news release announcing the session. “We need to bring this conversation to the forefront and be able to connect people with resources.”
The meeting is part of the Council Member on the Corner series that Evans started in 2018. The sessions have moved online because of COVID-19 restrictions.
