Project Hope: Free, Virtual, Mental Health Sessions With World Renowned Experts

Crossroads of Western Iowa presents Project Hope, a series of free mental health support sessions and Q&As for those impacted by Covid-19. The 2-hour sessions will run throughout December and January with recordings available for those unable to attend live. While all sessions are free and open to the public, they will touch on issues of particular importance to three groups: first responders, essential workers, and students.

Project Hope will help our community cope with the changes brought on by Covid-19, whether that is staying connected while socially distant, overcoming compassion fatigue, dealing with vicarious trauma and the loss of normalcy, or taking ownership of your time and building resiliency during a time everything feels out of control.

By coming together to ask questions and discuss positive mental health habits, everyone will be reminded that what we are currently facing is a shared experience and we can help each other and ourselves through it.

Project Hope’s world-renowned speakers have been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Dr. Oz Show, TODAY, Rachael Ray, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, CBS Sunday Morning, ABC World News Tonight, TLC, TEDx, and more. The lineup includes Dr. Carolyn Curtis from the Gottman Institute, a world leader in relationship counseling and research; two speakers from Franklin Covey, known for their books The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens; Barbara Rubel, Director of the Griefwork Center and co-author of the DOJ’s training curriculum Compassion Fatigue/Vicarious Trauma; and Dr. Christine Carter, a sociologist and senior fellow at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center.

A full list of speakers, including their bios and presentation descriptions, is available online. Anyone interested may register online at
