While we need to practice “Social Distancing” for the physical health and welfare of our country right now, we don’t need to succumb to emotional distancing and dysphoria.
We can still come together in smart and safe ways for the mental health and well-being of our children, and ourselves. In fact, connecting in caring communities – especially during times of traumatic stress – is absolutely vital to both your body’s nervous system and immune system.
And yes, it takes a village…!
These FREE Community Events are being offered currently as support for all the parents and professionals out there – including school teachers, counselors, and administrators, medical, mental health, and childcare providers - trying each day to care for our kids.
Hopefully, these offerings can help care for you, too.
