Covid CONNECT Webinar Series

Join us every other Thursday for the Covid CONNECT Webinar Series. Developed in partnership with NAMI Maryland and other stakeholders, these presentations include speakers who cover topics on mental health, wellness and recovery. These webinars are curated specifically for Marylanders who have been impacted by COVID-19. Registration is required. 

Webinars take place every other Thursday at 5 p.m.

Resilience and Well-being



Presenter: Catherine Gray

Summary: This presentation helps us look at what resilience is, how we can build resilience skills in ourselves and how we can foster resilience in others. Resilience is the strength, skills and resources to help us thrive. These skills can be developed and enhanced throughout our lives.

“I am here to help the community in all aspects. If you are unable to come out to the site, that’s not a problem. I’ll come to you. And I’ll do the swap in my PPE and bring it back to the Health Department.”

Self Care for Survivors



Presenter: Tony Barker

Summary: In addition to specific techniques, we address the, “Why” question; making the case for restorative efforts to be prioritized even with the busiest of schedules, and weighty responsibilities to others. We introduce neurology-based strategies for getting the most out of the time spent on this vital skill set. This includes significant enhancements to efforts you may already be making.

Virtual Support Groups

Virtual support groups are available through CovidCONNECT. We encourage you to join a session to talk with other Marylanders who have had COVID-19. Trained peer facilitators host small groups on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. We will send an invitation with details and login information for those interested in connecting with others and talking about the challenges of recovering from COVID-19. If you have questions or requests about virtual support groups and related resources, please email
