Video Series – Helping Students Manage Challenging Feelings in Challenging Times
We are honored and grateful to partner with Redwood Credit Union in Santa Rosa, California to share a video series to support children and the parents who love them deal with these tough times. Families have been adversely impacted by the pandemic, by wild fires, by political and social unrest, the economy, and by racial injustice. We all – kids and parents alike – can benefit from learning simple, practical ways in which we can cope with the difficult feelings emerging in these challenging times. Friends, family members and colleagues join Jennifer Miller to act out these important tips. And for teens, a local mental health organization, NAMI Sonoma County along with local youth, offer their tips. For follow up resources including a big feelings list, healthy coping strategies lists by age/stage, a family emotional safety plan and mental health resources, check out the Redwood Credit Union Student Wellness Resources page. Hope you enjoy!
