WHO: Author and speaker Mike Veny, recognized as one of the 100 most influential people in the healthcare industry, has a mission to help communities heal emotional pain and discover meaning through simple ideas that empower wellness and healthy relationships.

Veny coined the term The Stigma Cycle™ to describe the destructiveness of untreated and undiagnosed mental health.

"You might have a great day today but something might happen tomorrow that's going to lift the rug from under you emotionally," said Mike Veny. "This is why it's crucial to have tools and resources that you can use to take your power back. It's not enough to wait until you're in the moment and figure out what to do. It's best to be proactive about your mental health and emotional wellness."

In his presentation, Veny will cover topics such as:

-Why we need to take our power back over our emotional and mental health

-How to know when you've lost control over your emotional wellness

-Common things that are stealing your power

-Specific actions you can take to regain control

-Resources to help with anxiety during 2020
