Mental Health for LGBTQ+ Families in This Time of Covid,
Injustice, Political Stress and More

We have all been affected by the events of this last year.   These conditions have taken a toll on us all, especially for our families.  

This event provides a safe setting for us to connect, share and learn.  We will be joined by a panel of experts in our community, who will speak briefly to get the discussions started, offer some resources and ideas, then we will open for Q&A.

What would YOU like to discuss? Some ideas might include:

The impact of FEAR  |   Parenting - boundaries - anger  | When to seek professional assistance  |  Inability for connections, including for our children of color who aren't able to engage with peers/leaders in the BIPOC community  |  Isolation  |  Challenges for children with developmental differences  |  Chosen families not always recognized or valued |  Political divide in our own families - extended family members, election anger  |  Social media, its relationship to mental health  |  Achievable coping techniques |  Parents and children not able to connect with loved ones for several months  |  Anger, stress on relationships (partner, spouse, child)  |  Self-care when you don't have time for self-care (or even time to think about it)  

Thanks to a generous donation, this program is offered at no cost
