The global pandemic has impacted all ages emotionally and, in some instances, physically as well. Children have had to navigate feelings and emotions that even adults were not prepared for.

Atlantic Health System is offering a four-part series dedicated to providing parents with the tools and language to have meaningful, but difficult, conversations about life, and support their children through difficult emotions to help them build coping skills, resilience and HOPE.

Sessions will be held from 7:00 to 8:00pm via Zoom Meeting:
