Previous sessions have included content about disaster case management and FEMA.
“The Midland Area Community Foundation wants to make sure residents have the information they need,” said Sharon Mortensen, President and CEO of the Midland Area Community Foundation and member of the Long-Term Recovery Group Steering Committee. “Mental wellbeing plays a vital role in ensuring our community thrives. It’s our intent to connect experts in the field of mental health with flood survivors and community members to share insights and resources during these very challenging times.”
Flood Recovery Update and Connections are open to everyone. Attendees are asked to register for the sessions at MidlandFoundation.org/ZoomIntoFlood. Sessions will be held the first and third Thursday of the month at 10:30am. For those unable to attend, replays of past sessions are also available at MidlandFoundation.org/ZoomIntoFlood.
“Flood recovery is a complicated and ever-evolving undertaking,” said Mortensen. “Together with the Long-Term Recovery Group, we are working to make sure Midlanders understand they have resources as we take this journey together.”
Presenters for the third session are Deana Mason, Program Director for Midland Community Mental Health for Central Michigan, Megan Thompson, MTSS Coordinator and Student Support Specialist for Meridian Public Schools, and Martina Ricards, Clinical Social Worker for Partners in Change. More presenters may be added as the session date approaches.
