Too many of us spend so much time taking care of the people we love that we forget to take care of ourselves. In the Sullivan Foundation’s next Skills-Based Session, facilitator Ronan “Chalky” Mac Domhnaill of Cred.Global and a team of coaches will encourage participants to look inward first so they can be more effective changemakers.
The virtual session, titled “How to Prioritize Your Mental Health to Create Real Impact,” will be held at 10 a.m. (ET), Friday, April 23. It’s free and open to the public.
In this interactive session, participants will learn to recognize what they’re doing well to support their own mental health and well-being. They’ll also identify some early warning signs that indicate they might be falling into bad habits and become more aware of their personal support networks.
They will walk away with a personalized “well-being canvas” that can be used to hold themselves accountable and build habits that stick.
Other coaches participating in the Skills-Based Sessions include Sam Vaghar of the Millennium Campus Network; Dustin Liu, the U.S. Youth Observer to the United Nations; Jonathan Kibe, founder of the LOVE Project; Ben Zapchenk, a former U.S. Peace Corps volunteer and English-as-a-Second Language instructor in Marrakech, Morrocco; fundraiser and marketer Danielle Biggs; human rights activist Ashley Madrigal; Brandi Jordan, founder of Remote Ramblers; Jordan Reeves, founder of VideoOut; Mentor Dida, a movement-building consultant to the UN; Megan Truman of City Year, D.C.; Marcela Fernandez, brand ambassador for Selina, one of the world’s top startups serving the digital nomad community; international consultant Sara Hoy; and Luz Cabrera of Young People For, a program of the People for the American Way Foundation.
