Family Resiliency: How to Cope During Stressful Times 


Date: Wednesday, January 27, 2021

Time:  7 pm – 8 pm



Over the last 10 months, many families have struggled and experienced stress that may be related to the pandemic.  Your family may have had many challenges due to the impact of COVID-19 that may have affected your physical and mental health, as well as the well-being of your children.  


In this FREE Zoom presentation on mental health wellness, counselors from the National Family Resiliency Center will share information with you, as parents, grandparents and caregivers, on what you can do for yourself and for your children to build your family’s level of resilience and cope with the many stressors that these challenging times may be causing.  Becoming more resilient will not only help you through tough times, it will also empower you and your family to grow and may improve your and your children’s lives along the way.


Horizon Foundation 2020 Mental Health Community Engagement Project


We are pleased to announce that the MRHS-PTSA has received a $1250 grant from the Horizon Foundation from their 2020 Mental Health Community Engagement Project. The Foundation is committed to supporting organizational partners to help increase Howard County parent and student awareness of the signs/symptoms of anxiety and depression. The purpose of their grant is to help encourage and normalize help-seeking behavior related to mental health, address social and cultural stigmas that could prevent people from getting the help they need and further help parents learn about and take advantage of school-based mental health services in schools where they exist.


At MRHS, the PTSA will be working on two projects. First, we will be providing our students access to a free webinar series created by Drs. Bruce C. Neimeyer (MRHS Parent) and Suzie Carmack that addresses how to deal with the stress and anxiety associated with the college search and admissions process. Second, MRHS parent Linda Mattes will be creating a community activity this spring in partnership with other MRHS student organizations that focus on addressing mental health issues to improve awareness and access to other mental health resources. 


To learn more about the grant and these projects or to assist us with these projects, please contact Dr. Bruce C. Neimeyer at or Linda Mattes at We look forward to making significant progress this year with our students and community.
