Join the May 21 Faith Talks on Anxiety at 6 pm ET

Affecting an estimated 40 million adults, anxiety is the most common mental health disorder in the United States. While anxiety is highly treatable, only 39.6 percent of people who suffer from the disorder seek treatment. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of people were struggling with anxiety, and we can only imagine how those people, and others, are faring.

On Thursday, May 21 at 6:00 p.m. ET, join me for a live recording of the United Methodist Women #FaithTalks podcast. In this session, we’ll not only discuss the disorder and hear from experts who’ll have resources to help. With COVID-19 putting so many of us on edge, this session will be a help to anyone suffering from anxiety or seeking to help family members, as well as friends of lay leaders who are suffering from the disorder. Host Jennifer Farmer will interview Hannah Kardon, whose Illinois congregation authored the United Methodist Women study on anxiety, psychologist Dr. Trudy Corry Rankin, who authored a United Methodist Women resource on anxiety and mental health in children and youth, and Kris Dam, who leads Shessler Hall, a National Mission Institute that serves women experiencing mental health and substance abuse challenges.

This will be a time of learning, fellowship and hope. You can register here:
