Hickory – You are invited to Patrick Beaver Memorial Library on Thursday, August 19, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. as we learn about depression and anxiety. VayaHealth will present two training sessions: “Depression: From Surviving to Thriving” and “Anxiety: Calming the Anxious Mind.”VayaHealth Hosts Two Training Sessions

The first class will be at 10:00 a.m. Depressive symptoms often present themselves through feelings of isolation, hopelessness, and despair. In this session, we will examine different types, common causes, symptoms and treatment methods for depression focusing on moving from a place of simply surviving to one of thriving.

The second class will be at 11:00 a.m. Anxiety can be debilitating force in one’s life. At times, anxiety can be so debilitating that it interferes with the ability to manage one’s own activities of daily living. When this happens, it’s important to know that there are supports available to treat and assist in the management of symptoms. This curriculum focuses on different types of anxiety disorders, specifically detailing ones more commonly noted in the older adults and interventions available to assist in calming the anxious mind.

Contact hours are available on the day of the program.
