Supporting Families in Challenging Times
Increased stress and isolation are leading to increased mental health, substance use, and maltreatment issues... so more families are experiencing crises and need support.
At the same time, there are less resources available, agencies are under-staffed, and "helpers" are overwhelmed.
Scroll through this list of resources. Each guide has links to extended learning and training videos. If you are still feeling stuck, please let us help. We can brainstorm with you and connect you/ your client with local services and supports.
First, take a moment for yourself...
Have you been feeling "wilted" lately? Before you help families in crisis, do a quick body scan. How are YOU feeling right now? Is there anything YOU need?
