Chaos to Calm: Mind-Body Skills
Dr. Annie Weisman of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine is offering this extra support session for anyone who may need it in light of the startling events that have unfolded at the US Capitol.
Be sure to take extra personal care of yourself during this time. Remember to use any of the healthy coping techniques that have helped you in the past. Reach out to others who can support you. Limit your exposure to media coverage, focusing on factual and reliable sources.
The Resiliency Center staff is here 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT to listen to, support, and assist you in finding services if needed. For 24/7 support, you may call or text the Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-985-5330 to connect with a trained crisis counselor. Visit resiliencyandjustice.org/trauma-coping-tips for strategies that can help you deal with distressing thoughts.
