Untying the Human Knot:

Managing Stress and Anxiety in Today’s World

Feeling “stressed out”? Anxious about school or work performance, a life change, relationship, or recent events? You are not alone!

On Saturday, June 10, 2023 we explored the stress response and the impact it can have on our physical and mental health, as well as when everyday anxiety becomes an anxiety disorder, one of the most common mental health challenges in the US. We also learned what we can do to manage stress, and about local community resources.

The conference opened with a light breakfast and a community provider exhibit hall, followed by a panel presentation. It featured breakout sessions on several topics connected to understanding and managing stress and anxiety.

Of those surveyed 95% rated the conference as excellent/very good and are likely to attend/recommend future NRCI conferences.

We thank our panelists and presenters, sponsors, volunteers, and our host, Evanston Township High School.

An annual event since 2002, the NRCI Community Mental Health Conference brings together persons with lived experience, those that care for them, mental health and other professionals and interested community members.
