COVID-19 Stories of Resilience

 

We want to hear from trauma professionals who are navigating COVID-19! Many of you who took our COVID-19 survey asked us to share stories from others in the trauma community to help you feel less alone.

If you haven't taken the two-minute survey yet, complete it here.
