The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Southwest Wisconsin will be hosting a monthly virtual presentation/discussion tackling topics to help learn how to work on many tasks that include legal issues, financial issues, health issues, mental health issues and emotional issues; sometimes all of those at once.

Living with a disability, living in an aging body, living with mental health struggles: all require Tough Talks. Tough Talks are not easy, but they are necessary.

Roger Reynolds grew up on a farm in Crawford County, WI and has lived in Southwestern Wisconsin most of his life. Roger lives with Civilian PTSD, depression and anxiety. He is a Mental Health Peer Leader and has participated in, designed and led peer-led Mental Health support groups and skills groups.

Our first in the series will be on Tuesday, April 19th at 11:00 AM via ZOOM. To register you can call 608-328-9610 or email

Session 1 TOPIC: I Am Tired of the Pandemic. And It is not Over, Yet!

Pandemics happen, but the last major one was 100 years ago. This pandemic has been confusing, scary, stressful, tiring, and more. We will talk about some of our own struggles. Roger will talk about a bit of science, a bit of pandemic history and a bit of psychology. We will end by talking about how each person can plan better for their life, until this ends. (We will not debate protocols or politics regarding the pandemic.)
