“The Age of Anxiety: Addressing the Dominant Mental Malady of Our Time”

Sunday, October 9th

Anxiety is the most widespread mental health challenge worldwide, affecting virtually all ethnic and age groups. In recent years, this condition has steadily increased, spurred in part by growing uncertainty over the state of our nation, the geopolitical world and our planet. The span of so-called “anxiety disorders” is broad, encompassing psychological, social and spiritual impacts. We will examine what fuels anxiety, how it manifests in mind, body, and spirit, and what we can do to address it in our lives.

About our Guest: After 32 years as President and CEO, Philip recently retired from Empathia, Inc., a behavioral services firm providing health, safety, and productivity solutions for over 400 organizations across North America.
