Hospital Lunch and Learn looks at how to cope with December’s challenges

To help locals cope with the dual challenges of wintertime stress and the holidays, the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital District is hosting a special mental health event in December.

Join a panel of therapists and counselors for a one-hour “Lunch & Learn” panel discussion beginning at noon on Thursday, Dec. 1, at the Snoqualmie Fire Department. Bring your questions and comments and be prepared to discuss coping with year-end stress. For example, when is it appropriate to seek professional help rather than just talking to a friend?

This event is equally appropriate for health and human services professionals, family caregivers, care receivers, or for anyone else who otherwise may find the end of the year stressful.

Lunch & Learns are scheduled for the first Thursday of each month and begin promptly at noon. In 2012 look for a series of Lunch & Learns around life transitions.

Snoqualmie Valley Hospital Foundation financially underwrites costs for public forums such as Lunch & Learns, fundraises for Affordable Access vouchers, supports Hospital District staff and patients, and awards scholarships for youth pursing healthcare careers.
