2020 has been a difficult year on many fronts and social distancing can lead to individuals feeling isolated, anxious, and alone. However, we believe open and honest conversations on mental health can help alleviate some of these stressors. Caitlin will be discussing radical compassion, RAIN (Recognition, Allow, Investigate, Nurture), and lead a guided meditation.
