JCS Connect is a series of virtual sessions that informs, educates and inspires community members about critical issues in our community and the work JCS is doing to help combat these challenges.

On May 4th we held our most recent JCS Connect. Hosted by Peri Ann Aptaker, JFS Past President, this was a one-hour, in-depth conversation addressing the impacts of the yoyo of COVID and our resilience. Beth Lamarre, Director of NAMI RI, spoke about the national rise in anxiety, depression, and other mental health struggles due to COVID and the important role resiliency plays in optimizing our overall sense of wellbeing and quality of life. Laurie McNiff, JCS’ Clinical Supervisor, then added to the discussion, highlighting the Counseling Center at JCS.
