Self Care in uncertain times (Part 2)
As we close out our celebration of Women's HERstory Month, we continue our conversation on the importance of Self Care in these uncertain times with mental health clinicians of color. Today's show is the 2nd part of our continuing conversation on support for our mental health and well being. We know that this pandemic has disproportionately impacted women. There is no doubt, for such a time as this, assessing where we are, what support we need and also celebrating our resiliency, is important. Today I am joined a new team of clinicians who are experts in this area. They offer tips, resources and support while sharing their experiences and how we can individually and collectively destigmatize mental health. We also discuss the bright spots of this pandemic and the ways in which we have seen and experienced our strength and resiliency!
