Virtual mental health event on tap Aug. 26


Crow Wing County is partnering with Cuyuna Area Connections to help remove boundaries, build networks and provide education to sustain independence for aging community members and caregivers.

The county invites those interested to join Jode Freyholtz-London, 2017’s Rural Health Hero, and founder and executive director of Wellness in the Woods, to hear personal stories of hope, learn about ways to connect virtually with others throughout the communities in which we live, work and play, as well as learn about the upcoming free offering of Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) for seniors coming in September.

Any adult community member who has experienced or knows someone who has experienced stress, anxiety and deepened social isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, health care leaders, caregivers of an older adult, nursing students, work students and others who support elders in the community are encouraged to attend.

Participants will learn about three free virtual mental health support resources that are currently being offered; network with seniors and mental health leaders who support the underserved communities throughout the state; and hear personal stories of hope, recovery and resiliency.
