This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a future date.

With a cratering economy, tenuous job security, education disrupted and a return to normalcy nowhere in sight, more people are experiencing higher levels of anxiety and stress.

Here & Now senior editor Peter O’Dowd discusses the mental toll COVID-19 is taking on all of us and the ways we can cope with Dr. Paul Summergrad, psychiatrist-in-chief at Tufts Medical Center; Dr. Michelle Durham, assistant professor of psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine and an adult, child and adolescent psychiatrist at Boston Medical Center; and author Morra Aarons-Mele, whose recent article in Harvard Business Review addressed this topic.

The livestream starts Tuesday, June 2 at 6 p.m. Our WBUR Town Hall Series is free and open to the public, but advance registration is requested. Register for the full June lineup below.
