Mental health is one of the biggest issues our world is collectively facing, creating a “shadow pandemic” as widespread as the virus itself. Today’s guest, CHC Licensed Psychologist Pardis Khosravi, shares strategies for us to be more understanding and accepting of our own humanness, thus improving our ability to cope with adversity, make changes that lead to personal growth and model self-compassion for our kids.
