We wanted to share some resources with you as we proceed with our online learning. We have been given incredible access to content which will enhance the learning experience. Many of these resources required subscriptions, but the companies have given the public full access.
While we know this time can be stressful, we have found a great resource called HeadSpace. This focuses on mindfulness and wellbeing. Many of its programs are free for the time being. Also, Mental Health, Wellness and Community Resources for Families include resources on community resources, reducing stress and anxiety, access to basic needs, substance abuse resources, telemental health resources, mental health & crisis counseling & resources to support learning.
