Stress coping workshop

The Counseling Ministry at Sun Lakes United Methodist Church is hosting a program for the community that deals with stress and ways to cope. The program, called, “The Stress Test and Ways to Cope Workshop 2017,” will be held on Thursday, April 27, from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m., in Room 2 of the church’s Education Building.

The workshop will include positive mental health coping concepts and strategies. It will include a Personalized Stress Inventory and a Personal Coping Plan for all. There also will be a question and answer period at the end of the workshop. Join us for this informative hour.
