Self-care in a time of collective trauma: A new chat with Hope for the Day (Episode 365)

We’re all still quarantined, and it’s still OK not to be OK. It’s been a while, so I checked back in with Mike Vinopal (Director of Education) and Joel Frieders (Director of Public Policy) from Hope for the Day.

We talk about self-care ideas, ways to manage through the stressors and issues created by the pandemic, and shared emotions we’re all experiencing.

Hope for the Day wanted to share the following resources with you:

A virtual gallery show runs through 6/7 from Egoproof x Rotofugi. A portion of proceeds from prints sold will benefit HFTD.
And finally, for people trying to find resources in any US Zip Code for mental health & a variety of other social services (food relief, legal aid, etc.):
