The year 2020 has been one of change, anxiety and inconsistency for many. The way we live, we play and we work has been drastically impacted. How, and who we socialize with, has been changed for the foreseeable future. All of this has the potential to bring about anxiety, impact the way we feel and to alter the ways we think about what the future will hold. In September, many parents and caregivers across Vancouver had the difficult decision to make as to whether to send their children back to school, how to balance their children’s social and educational needs with their own needs, whether working-at-home, returning to work in the office or looking for work.
