SCA hosts mental health webinar

The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) hosted an expert webinar on mental health and stress on 27 March.

SCA Community Manager Richard Stiller moderated a panel with Courtney Muir, licensed marriage and family therapist and self-care coach, and representatives of all the Barista, Coffee Roasters, and Coffee Technicians Guilds.

In the webinar, Muir discussed why Covid-19 is bringing up intense emotions, how coffee professionals can work with those emotions to move forward in uncertain times, and what specific strategies and tools are particularly useful for “keeping calm and carrying on”.

Guild leaders also lead a Q&A with questions collected from their communities.

As the Covid-19 situation continues to rapidly evolve, the SCA is still waiting to understand the full impact of the pandemic on the industry.
