The need to lower expectations of ourselves (and others) during COVID-19

Thanks so much to the Junior League of Summit for hosting my series of 3 talks on mental health during COVID-19. My last talk focused on the need to lower your expectations of yourself and others during this time, and highlighted CBT strategies to help you do so.

While we’re all focused on physical health during this time, we also have to recognize the profound mental health implications of COVID and do what we can to flatten the mental health curve. If you are having difficulty coping, know that you are absolutely not alone, and please, reach out for help. The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies’ Find-A-Therapist service is a great place to start.
