On August 26 we are hosting a live-streamed podcast in which Rev. Doug Meyer will interview three licensed counselors who are connected to Trietsch. In this podcast, you will be able to ask questions, share stories, or give your input on topics relating to mental health. As our kids are returning to school, we will be focus on depression and anxiety in teens, bullying, and school violence, but we are also open to discussing issues happening daily with you. We know that mental health and mental illness are not contained to a certain age, race, gender, or economic status.
You can join the podcast via Facebook Live on Monday, August 26 at 8 pm on the Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church Facebook page.
