The topic of the free FOCUS Forum for December was mental health. Video will be available soon to let you hear from three experts as they discuss the impact the pandemic has had on the mental health of our community and share their thoughts on the short- and long-term effects on children and adults. The panel includes experts in the areas of family advocacy, counseling services, and community planning.
Onondaga County Commissioner of Adult and Long Term Care Services Lisa D. Alford; Clinical Director of Psychological Healthcare Ronald C. Fish, PhD; and the President of NAMI Syracuse Marla Byrnes offer their insights with Executive Director of Access CNY Paul Joslyn moderating.
This will also be an opportunity for the community to hear how service providers have adapted to meet the moment.
