Grief’s Answer to Covid, Hope and Meaning

In this session, Lauri Badura testifies to the impact addiction and suicide is having in our communities and how it too often goes unreported, while Melissa Minkley provides methods to nurture hope within ourselves and make meaning of our losses through the Covid-19 pandemic.

The mission of SOFA is to serve grassroots efforts to prevent substance abuse through raising awareness of the relationship between addiction and mental health issues.
