This is a movement to address mental health competency gaps needed to help our society heal from the traumas all we’ve endured and to build a road to restoring humanity back to the melting pot it was founded upon.
"This is a defining moment in history. The future will rely on social & emotional competencies as take stock of those we’ve lost, the tears we’ve shed of the departed, honor our heroes, and rebuild our societal & economic infrastructure to support our world anew. It will test our compassion, our empathy, our ability to collaborate, to share resources. But it affords us the opportunity to rethink our educational systems, our governmental policies, and our workplaces in a way that may have been unimaginable."
