Episode 8: Back to School during COVID-19

Note: This episode discusses the use of substances.

Going back to school can be a stressful time, and with the pandemic, some of us might be finding this transition harder to manage. 

In this episode, Beki and Olivia are joined by Cassy to chat about expectations students could be facing on their return to school and how that impacts them. The group takes time to discuss some healthy coping strategies we might use to manage expectations and uncertainty, along with unhealthy ones that may also arise. 

Ways to seek out support are also discussed, as we don't need to manage everything on our own. For the resource list mentioned in the episode, click here
