S.5 Ep.8 — Parenting Through the Pandemic

In this episode, local parenting experts and advocates, and mental health professionals, joined forces to share warmth and wisdom for those of us parenting through the pandemic. Not a parent? No problem. You will still benefit from the discussions on self-care, recognizing ourselves as experts of our own experiences, and what it means for us as a community to be experiencing collective trauma.
