Learn how to cope more effectively during these difficult times

During these very difficult times of the pandemic, we know that so many people are struggling with an entirely new way to live their daily lives. Some cannot deal with the isolation. Others are trying to manage with their children and their spouses at home. Elders are feeling vulnerable and isolated. The emotions are under great stress. Humans hate the lack of certainty. They also need others to create a safe social life. With this in mind, we wanted to share with our listeners and readers what mental health professionals advise and how their wisdom might help you cope more effectively. Our guest today is Carl Clark. I have worked with Carl and his organization, the Mental Health Center of Denver, to help them rethink their Blue Ocean Strategy. Please listen.

Dr. Carl Clark’s early experience with his father’s bipolar disorder sparked a commitment to helping people with mental illness regain their lives, hopes and aspirations. As President and Chief Executive Officer of the Mental Health Center of Denver, Dr. Clark leads this organization in “focusing on what people can do, not what they can’t do.”

More than 10 years ago, Dr. Clark challenged the MHC of Denver to be “The Center of Excellence” with the best and most innovative mental health services in the country, and by most measures, has accomplished that. Under his visionary leadership, MHC of Denver has received The Denver Post Top Work Places Award for the past seven years in a row, and was awarded the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce Large Non-Profit of the Year in 2013.
