Do worry, fear, anxiety and uncertainty inhibit your daily life? Do you avoid people or activities that are important to you? Does your mind seem filled with overwhelming thoughts and emotions? Join us to gain a better understanding of types of anxiety and depression and how they can impact your life or the life of others. Together, we will discuss tools and tips to support someone who struggles with emotional disorders. We will also engage in meaningful conversation around balancing situational anxiety/depression and defining on-going emotional challenges to determine the differences. We will use examples to build your toolkit of resources for yourself or to aid others in daily living.


  • Define anxiety and depression
  • Describe how stressful life events may be linked to emotional disorders, i.e., anxiety, depression, mood disorder
  • Describe primary features of stress responses connected to anxiety/depression
  • Assess the role one’s environment may play in emotional disorders
  • Learn key tips to help better understand situational circumstances versus long term emotional disorders
