Please join Amanda Levy, LCSW, a psychotherapist and social work supervisor for an interactive discussion about creating a healthy mind and body balance in these challenging times. 

  • After experiencing nearly two years of the pandemic during our lifetime, are we still talking about COVID-19? Why or why not? 
  • How has it helped our mental state, or not? 
  • As we strive to keep our mind and body healthy, the talk will explore the definition and difference between resilience and rumination. 
  • What does it mean to be healthy in these uncertain and stressful times? 
  • Participants are encouraged to share their experiences and ideas about how to handle it all, finding the best and easiest ways to create a healthy balance of caution and concern, along with developing strategies of self-care.
Amanda Levy, LCSW, has worked with children and families for more than 30 years. She is currently the Director of Clinical Services for Yachad, an agency of the Orthodox Union that creates programs and services for people with developmental disabilities. Amanda brings years of experience coordinating services for families caring for children with developmental disabilities and mental illness. She also has a private practice serving families, couples, individual adults, and children. Helping people navigate the developmental milestones of family life can often be challenging. Bringing creativity and skill to the situation can offer relief as well as the ability to continue the journey. Amanda brings warmth, enthusiasm, and a creative positive spin into her work, and after all these years still loves what she does.

Funding has been made possible in part by a general operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a Division of the Department of State, through grant funds administered by the Monmouth County Historical Commission.
