The Behavioral Health Committee of Jewish Family Service of San Diego
Education Event in Honor of Mental Health Month


The science and data are very clear: social isolation is one of the most dangerous risk factors affecting older adults. But as we age, maintaining social connections and prioritizing our mental wellness can often get put on the backburner. Taking care of our mental health is even more important during these unprecedented times. Join us for an inspiring discussion to discover how we can age with resilience and combat loneliness during the pandemic and beyond.

We’ll discuss:

  • Common myths about aging
  • How loneliness and dementia affect the aging process
  • The impact of COVID-19 on social isolation
  • Easy tips on how to stay mentally strong as we get older
