As the COVID-19 Pandemic struck the U.S. several weeks ago, our thoughts went immediately to the people most vulnerable to such a crisis: those already challenged by mental and physical illnesses. We then reached out to several leaders in the mental health field and asked them to speak to topics relevant to families, individuals, and mental health program leaders during these difficult times.

The six podcast episodes, all linked below, covered topics ranging from authenticity to teamwork, social connectedness to humor, crisis management, practical tips, online communication and trauma resilience to Zoom fatigue, future planning, and more.
