This new support group from Relate Counseling Center will give parents who are burnt-out from caretaking during the pandemic an opportunity to connect and process the difficulties of the past two years. Group facilitators will provide topics each week (ranging from managing work responsibilities and parenting duties, to navigating pandemic-related grief and anxiety) for participants to discuss and process.
