Connections matter: Developing Brain, Relationships and Community
Trauma and mental health have a direct impact on a workplace. In fact, the annual cost of trauma is reported to be $671 billion a year in health care and lost productivity. As we work towards the goals of Q2030 in creating a healthier and more inclusive Quad Cities, mental health in the workplace and in the community is an important need that is essential to address. We must create a welcoming community in which all people are embraced, have an equal opportunity for success and know that their differences are the foundation for the region’s successes.
Angie Kendall, Director of Development & Communications for the Child Abuse Council will present evidence-based facts on how stress impacts the brain, and how together we can build relationships to improve individual and community well-being. Learn specific ideas on actions you can take in your professional and personal lives, and identify the next steps for creating environments that strengthen families from the start, providing children and adults with a history of trauma an opportunity to heal.
During the lunch hour, join YPQC to enhance your personal and professional development skills. With a new speaker and topic each month, you'll brush up on your skills each time while learning more about the local opportunities available to young professionals. Network, grab a bite to eat, and pick up some new insight at our monthly Network @ Noon, typically held the second Tuesday of each month. Make sure to arrive early for check-in which will begin at 11:45 am.
