At this time I am prioritizing articles and websites that have been helpful for me in maintaining wellbeing during the time of COVID 19.

I’ve grouped the resources into three categories. I’ll provide a brief introduction to each resource and why it has been important to me. Feel free to forward to my email any pieces you think might be helpful to others.
