**Special webinar series** COVID-19 Mental Checkup: Grief and Loss

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly altered the way many are able to cope and move through the grieving process. Due to social distancing requirements to curb the spread of the virus, the pandemic has forced many people to change the way they say goodbye, complicating the grieving process, though making it no less important. If you've lost a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find comfort hearing from others who are also working through grief and loss, trying to adapt to the "new normal." Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan wants to help you check in on your mental health with a special webinar focused on the mental effects of COVID-19 specific to grief and loss. This one-hour virtual session will include an interactive panel discussion with community members who have lost a loved one during the pandemic and their personal experiences. This session will be facilitated by a mental health specialist who will provide tips for coping with resiliency strategies and techniques, and outline resources available to support you and your family.
