“Being Mentally Strong”

As you scroll through social media, do you get more and more depressed, sad and angry? Are you stuck thinking, “we should not have to deal with this?”

As we all navigate this terribly difficult and mentally draining time, Amy Morin, Mental Strength Trainer, and Lauren Schwartz, Executive Director of Collat Jewish Family Services, will help us reclaim our control and help us learn how to be mentally strong.

About the Speakers

She’s an international bestselling author. Her books, including 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do and 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do, have been translated into more than 40 languages and sold more than 1 million copies.

The Guardian dubbed her “the self-help guru of the moment.” Forbes calls her a “thought leadership star” and People says her book is one of the top 20 must read books of all time.
