In challenging times, taking care of ourselves and others is important. Life can leave us feeling stressed, anxious and worried during good times, not to mention during a pandemic. In addition, the national dialogue around structural and institutionalized racism and inequality is bringing up a lot of emotions for people. That’s why there is no better time than now to talk about how we’re feeling.
Our goal is to build resiliency within our community, and to remind everyone that self-care is critical right now, as is connection with our natural networks of support. We need each other now more than ever (even if it can’t be an in-person connection)! And when we need more than what our friends and family are able to provide us, professional helping services are available too. It’s ok not to be ok all the time, and during hard times like this, it is very normal to need more support and connection.
