Pay What You Can: Join DMAX Foundation for “Self-Esteem: Coping in Collective Isolation”

Industry: Non Profit

DMAX Foundation is here to help the community stay connected and have “Conversations That Connect” in the face of social distancing and COVID-19. On April 16th, join DMAX Foundation for “Self Esteem: Coping in Collective Isolation”, the first of two virtual segments of DMAX Foundation's 2020 Annual Educational Event.

Bryn Mawr, PA (PRUnderground) April 15th, 2020

During these challenging times, staying connected is more important than ever. DMAX Foundation invites us all to come together as a community, support each other, and to nurture our mental health and well-being with compassion and self-care. This virtual event will include a special presentation with Supermodel and Body Positivity Advocate EMME and special guests, all hosted online, with interactive capability.

Special guests include storyteller and Leadership Development expert Robyn Shumer of Janssen Research and Development; Johnson and Johnson’s Global Mental Health Ambassador Craig Kramer; DMAX Club Student Leaders;  and local teen singer-songwriter Maxie Mandel, whose songs support causes such as mental health. In addition, DMAX is proud to announce a special guest appearance by CBS 3’s Emmy Award-winning health reporter, Stephanie Stahl. Stephanie will present DMAX Foundation’s 2020 Leadership Award for her work as Champion for Workplace Mental Health Michelle Martin, Vice President ViacomCBS.

VIP tickets include a ticket to the second virtual segment of the program on April 23rd: “DMAX Students Speak”. DMAX Club leaders will share their own stories and talk about what DMAX Clubs are all about, from the inspiration to start them to the impact they’ve had on students and campuses, to the ever-increasing need during the spread of Covid-19.

General admission tickets can be purchased separately for each segment of the event. Students can register for FREE in advance. This event is NASW approved for Continuing Education Credits. For additional information and tickets, visit:

DMAX addresses a significant unmet need on college campuses where those suffering from emotional concerns often can’t or don’t seek counseling services because of stigma, overcrowding, and lack of resources, often leading to tragic results.  Research shows forty percent of college students with a mental health condition don’t talk about it or use college mental health services. DMAX Clubs encourage students to share with their peers what is going on for them, so they can help each other and realize that they are not alone in their struggles. When students break the silence about emotional struggles, they can help decrease the tragic results that too often occur when they keep their emotional pain to themselves.
