Recovering from the mental health impact of COVID-19 on women, including its effect on childcare availability, divorce rates, substance abuse and domestic violence, will be the topic of a Wayne County Women’s Commission summit from 7 to 8:30 p.m., March 31, and live streamed via Zoom.
The summit, “My Struggle is Your Struggle,” will feature a panel discussion featuring a diverse group of female mental health professionals. As entitled, the summit is designed to provide a safe space for women to learn, grow and begin healing together, as they navigate through hardships the pandemic has created or made worse.
“Too often, women don’t know how to deal with the impact of COVID-19 on their lives or where to go to get help,” Wayne County Commission Chair Alisha Bell (D-Detroit) said. “This summit is designed to help provide those answers and I hope women throughout Wayne County and our region will participate.”

The Wayne County Women’s Commission was created by Bell in 2021 to address issues pertaining to women and advise commissioners. It includes a diverse group of 22 women from throughout the county.
