Do I have to belong to a faith-based organization to attend?

No. Over the past year, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on everyone's mental well-being, including our leadership and those we serve, and this training addresses those concerns. That said, this is a public event and open to anyone that has an interest in learning how to ease the stress with practical tools for mitigating anxiety in ourselves and those we lead.
