Date: 03/05/2022
Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm

Stress, depression, and anxiety are just a few words we associate with mental health disorders that can distort how we reflect on ourselves and our surroundings. These disorders aren’t confined to age, race, socioeconomic factors, or gender. They can affect us all, but there are coping mechanisms all around us. Join us we dive deeper into the issue with Dr. Susan A. Masino, Vernon D. Roosa Professor of Applied Science with a joint appointment in Neuroscience and Psychology at Trinity College, as she discusses the relationship between forests and brain health. She will emphasize the benefits of natural ecosystems, ranging from medicines to minds, and with special opportunities for veterans, adolescents, and people with mental ill-health. There will be a reception following the lecture.

In-person attendance at the Norfolk Library (limited to 50 people) or watch via livestream at the Norfolk Hub (limited to 25 people).
