This workshop is a part of the Supporting Everyone’s Mental Health & Well-Being workshop series.

Many families and providers who serve them are under enormous stress. As professionals working with young children and their families, we need to care for our own mental health while we tend to the mental health of the families with whom we work. This series offers family-facing providers of all professions strategies they can use in their work and in their personal lives that honor everyone’s experiences, build resilience, and nurture self-care.
