BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) ––– Emotions are often high around elections, so the You Aren’t Alone Project is hosting ‘Conversations Over Coffee’ Thursday night at Social Coffee to help you find out how to be civically engaged without sacrificing your mental health.

The event features nonpartisan info to educate without spin, a counselor on hand to facilitate meaningful conversations, and plenty of coffee and treats!

You Aren’t Alone Project Board Member Jamee Blink says, “a lot of people don’t have the toolkit they need to process those feelings or to deal with the stress or anxiety that may come from the loud noise that is the news or the information that they’re getting around election season. So I think what this event in particular is trying to do is give people those tools and resources to deal with the stress and anxiety so that they can then take in that information and make decisions that are really important to them now and in their future.”

You Aren’t Alone Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting understanding, erasing stigma, and building relationships that will help support mental health and wellness in Baton Rouge and beyond. 

Conversations Over Coffee is Thursday, October 13, from 6–8 PM at Social Coffee, located at 521 N Third St in downtown Baton Rouge. Space is limited, so you’re asked to register ahead of time.
