Since spring of 2020 our lives have been turned upside down. We are all faced with daily challenges that would have been unheard of just 12 short months ago. From social distancing and mask wearing, to virtual education and work - constantly changing conditions mean we need to be flexible, adjust, learn, and innovate to support ourselves and families during this time.  

This ability to adapt to difficult situations is called resilience. We all can build on our resilience to help protect mental health for challenges that may arise, or help to support through current struggles. FamilyMeans Counseling & Therapy has created a 5 part video series that aims to teach you about resilience, provide practices to build up your resiliency, and focus on self-care. This series is great for youth, parents, teachers, and the general community.
