Seattle CARES Mentoring Movement

New webinar series “Voices for Change” launches January 25 with speaker Fonda Bryant

“Voices for Change,” a new six-month online series from Seattle CARES, launches this month. January’s speaker is Fonda Bryant, a nationally recognized expert on mental wellness and recovery. Her virtual presentation will be on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Bryant has appeared on television, in newspapers and magazines, and on the radio speaking about mental health and her transformative suicide prevention training. Last year, she trained more than 1,000 people from 25 states and five countries in ways to recognize a person in crisis and how to save a life.  In 2021, she was named the 2021 Remarkable Woman of Charlotte (N.C.) and also won Nexstar’s National Remarkable Woman for her work with mental health and suicide prevention.

“Voices for Change” augments one of Seattle CARES’ signature programs — Wellness Community Circles — which helps Black families, particularly those led by single women, improve their relationship with their children and provides a safe space where adults who want to parent more effectively can de-stress, share challenges and work on healing themselves.

Every month through June, the series will welcome speakers on a variety of topics to help the community navigate our challenging lives and our changing communities.  The online series is supported by King County’s Positive Family Connections.
