Clark will address challenges and answer questions, as well as provide tips for homeschooling, living peacefully with others, dealing with anxiety and depression, and more.

Our goal is to provide a safe, confidential environment where participants can express themselves, build community and receive helpful tips for self-care and self-management,” said Erica Nelson, deputy director of Operations.
