Parenting During Quarantine

Family Resources for learning at Home!

Mental Health Resources

We know that parents and caregivers might be feeling additional stress and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic, as we all navigate disrupted routines and changes to home, school, and work life. We get this, and would like to invite you to take 20 minutes for yourself to care for any anxious nerves, and nourish your capacity for wellness and resilience in the midst of crisis.

Join facilitators Dr. Dzung Vo and Dr. Joanna McDermid (below) of the BC Children’s Hospital Centre for Mindfulness, for a free 15-minute LIVE mindfulness session plus a 5 minute Q&A using Zoom videoconferencing! However busy or hectic your day might be, this powerful session of mindfulness will aim to bring you a sense of calm and comfort.
