Why You Should Care: Mental Health and Coping During the Pandemic

“Why You Should Care: Mental Health and Coping During the Pandemic,”  with Dr. Michelle Pride 

Sunday Service, June 13, 2021, 11am EST (By Zoom and perhaps also IN-PERSON! Stay tuned….we’ll send out a special edition of the Greensheet if the UUFA Board votes on Saturday morning to open the Fellowship building to in-person services that will also be by Zoom for those who prefer not to attend in person.)

We’re thrilled to have Dr. Michelle Pride speak to us this Sunday on mental health and coping during a pandemic. She’s one of so many mental health professionals who now have a unique window on the pandemic’s effect on our mental health.

Michelle Pride, Ph.D. Michelle received her doctorate from Michigan State University. She is a multicultural/feminist/constructivist therapist who has specialized in working in a university setting. Her interests and expertise include women’s issues, LGBTIQA+ issues, trans affirmative therapy, group therapy, trauma work, and working with student athletes. Michelle was the training director for 8 years and for the last 3 years she has been working on balancing her passions for clinical work, supervision, advocacy, and social justice, and self-care. When she’s not at work, you can find Michelle hiking, kayaking, knitting, gardening, or listening to esoteric podcasts..

UUFA HIKING SUNDAY We had quite a crowd for hiking Sunday! Thanks to all, newbies and longtimers and in-betweens who showed up. Here’s a photo of a few of people who showed up to either hike or sit and visit.  Thanks to Marilyn for taking the photo with all warned in advance that the photo might appear here. 

A few weeks ago the two people who voluntarily, through the goodness of their hearts, take care of our fellowship buildings and grounds—Fred at the left of the photo above, and Richard at the right—surprised each other by BOTH showing up with lawnmowers at the same time to mow the fellowship grounds. Thank you, Fred & Richard!
