Community Conversations about COVID Coping Strategies (Virtual)

Wednesday May 20

Self-distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 throughout our communities has brought about uncertainty and many changes in our day to day lives.

Change, even when positive, is stressful. How are you and your family doing? Would you like to share some of the ways that you have come up with for managing your stress?

Your strategies may be helpful to someone else! You invite are invited to share your thoughts – or just listen in for ideas – at a community conversation, facilitated by Judith Markey, Clinical Director at St. Johnsbury Psychology Associates.

This program will be hosted by Peacham Library through the Zoom program. There is a call in option for those without a computer
