2023-10-23 Romualds Granauskas public library hosted a publicizing event for the implementation of the Welfare Consultants model in the municipality of Skuodas district.
At the event, the work of the Welfare consultants and the results achieved to date were presented. Later it was discussed about emotional psychological health. The participants of the event took part in a discussion about depression and anxiety, their similarities and differences, how it occurs and how important prevention is. The work and time planning technique presented during the event was extremely interesting and useful, in which tasks are listed, among which time for yourself must be included, improving emotional and psychological health. All tasks are divided into four groups “Important and urgent”, “Important and not urgent”, “Not important and urgent”, “Not important and not urgent”, which later helps to distinguish which tasks should be given priority, makes it easier to plan the agenda and avoid unnecessary stress.
