The Mental Health During COVID-19 webinar will provide you with valuable information and resources from the line up of experienced, special guest speakers about mental health during these challenging times. We are going through this worldwide pandemic together and want to be able to provide you with the tools necessary to deal with the current changes we are experiencing in our daily lives. Your mental health is an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to coping while being isolated at home and adjusting to this new way of life.  






The first 300 registrants will receive a FREE copy of Dr. Bill Howatt's new book, "Stop Hiding and Start Living."

About the Book: The fact is most of us have something happening in our life that is a distraction, drain or concern. The frequency, duration and intensity of the stress we are perceiving can predict the degree it may negatively impact our mental health and happiness. This is why Dr. Bill Howatt created the F-it model to help people who are feeling stuck in one part of their life to move from fear, failure, focus, finishing to flourishing.
