Solidarity & Solace in a time of crisis:  

Community Care for Immune Support and Mental Wellbeing 

We are facing unprecedented times, and a level of stress that is beyond what we can handle alone.  On top of the many layers of practical stress that this crisis is creating, we also have a very real immune threat, which requires us to take even better care of ourselvs, our families, and specifically, our stress response, so as not to leave ourselves vulnerable.  Join us as we share simple and accessible tools for self and family care, and help us weave the basket of community support that will carry us through this challenging time.
