Kern Institute Connection Café
'You Are Fine, How Am I ?!' Practical Strategies for Recognizing and Responding to Mental Health Issues Within Yourself and Others
Himanshu Agrawal, MD, Sara Brady, MD, Cassie Ferguson, MD, and AODA Counselor Ms. Hilary Pick.
“How do two shrinks greet each other? You are fine, how am I?” There is significant research that recognizes the low prevalence of self-care, and the high prevalence of ill health amongst health care professionals. Studies point to the potential contributory and protective factors related to resiliency and vulnerability, burnout and ‘thrivingness’, and anxiety as well as depression.
This Connection Café event will provide a safe, intimate setting for participants to engage with the panelists. Drawing from their individual experience and journeys, Dr. Agrawal will engage the panelists and audience members alike, to traverse biological, psychological, social, and existential realms with the overarching goal to identify practical strategies for recognizing and responding to mental health issues within oneself and others, as if one’s life depends on it. Because it does.
