CHARLESTON, W.Va., Monday, September 14, 2020 — Join the American Red Cross for a series of virtual workshops. The workshops are live, interactive and virtual and is facilitated by Red Cross mental health volunteers. Participants are encouraged to share in the discussion as though they were in person together. All service members, veterans and their family members are welcome and encouraged to attend the sessions.

The goal of these workshops are to provide a safe, educational space. Participants will have an opportunity to share with others, learn and practice new skills and ask questions in a small online group.

COVID19 Stress Management: A virtual workshop that teaches stress-management and relaxation techniques for service members, veterans and their families. This will be a live, facilitated discussion around the challenges of living through the COVID-19 outbreak.
Stress Solutions: A virtual workshop that teaches stress management through learning the signs of stress, practicing relaxation techniques, discussing sleep issues, learning to help others and changing the way you think about stress.
