Encore: Love Your Life Through the Science of Happiness

So many of us want to be the people who leap out of bed and start the day with genuine joy for what their day holds. The weight of our responsibilities may make this unbridled happiness seem impossible.

While it may seem hard to imagine, we can learn to enjoy the little things, accept the plot twists in life, boost our moods, and stop self-sabotaging behaviors.

In this previously aired session, Lisa W. Coyne, PhD, provides tools and tips from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to better handle unexpected stressors, and answers audience questions about how we can be happier, one day at a time.

Join us: Monday, September 20 @ 11am ET

School can be stressful for so many reasons. Whether a child is just starting daycare or finishing up a university degree, the mental toll of education can be overwhelming. New schedules, peer influence, and difficulty learning can all amount to an increase in mental health challenges.

The Connections Between Parent & Child Mental Health

A child’s mental health is not just supported by their parents—it can be shaped by them. Mentally healthy children rely heavily on their parents and/or caregivers as the foundation for becoming independent, successful, happy adults.

Caregivers face plenty of challenges when looking after children, and parents and kids may also have shared risks of mental health difficulties, including social, economic, and genetic predispositions.

Join us as Arielle Gartenberg, PsyD, addresses the relationship between kid and caregiver mental health, explains ways to positively parent during stressful times, and answers audience questions about the connections between parent and child mental health.

Join us: Tuesday, October 5 @ 3pm ET

How To Support Someone With Depression

Depression is the leading cause of disability in the United States between the ages of 15 and 44. Yet, there is still stigma around the condition.

How can we support people navigating the dark days of depression? What do we do to reduce stigma around the condition? And what do we do when we’re experiencing depressive symptoms?

Join us as Christopher M. Palmer, MD, explains ways to identify the mood disorder in ourselves and others, shares tips to support people we care for who are experiencing depression, and answers audience questions about depressive disorders and the stigma surrounding them.

Join us: Wednesday, October 6 @ 12pm ET

The Impact of Grief and Loss on Your Mental Health

Grieving is a normal and healthy part of loss. Expression of grief varies by person and can impact thoughts, feeling, and even relationships and sense of identity. However, not all grief is healthy and can impact the rest of the coping process.

Join us as Ipsit Vahia, MD, discusses the healthy components of the grieving process, shares ways for us and our loved ones to strike a balance of coping and grieving, and answers audience questions about when to seek help for grief and loss.

Join us: Thursday, November 4 @ 12pm ET

Tap Into the Power of Self-Compassion

Self-compassion, by definition, is acting kind while forgiving and nurturing yourself—but that’s just scraping the surface of its impact. It can improve your relationships, your well-being, and your mental health, including reducing feelings of anxiety and depression.

While some people are more compassionate to themselves than others, it can be learned and applied to your own life.

Join us as David H. Rosmarin, PhD, ABPP, explains the impacts of self-compassion on our mental health, shares simple ways that we can become kinder to ourselves, and answers audience questions about how we can foster more compassion for ourselves and for one another.

Join us: Thursday, December 2 @ 11am ET
