In October 2020, the Melton Foundation organized a Mental Well-being Workshop for members of the network. Hosted by Senior Melton Fellow Dr. Vernice Richards, a Ph.D. holder in Sports Psychology and Performance Psychology Consultant, the workshop explored a topic deeply resonant with the current background of the COVID-19 pandemic - ‘Uncertainty’. As emphasized at the very beginning of the event, the objective of the workshop was to make one feel uncomfortable, get out of one’s comfort zone, and ask and answer some serious questions.
As the emergent impacts of the coronavirus mount across our communities, Senior Melton Fellow May Garces, and team, are currently raising funds to support vulnerable families in Temuco and Santiago, Chile. Their COVID-19 Response Fund aims to provide immediate resources to the vulnerable population in Chile. We ask that you join hands in this endeavor and make a donation today! :)
