The Anti-Stigma Coalition hosted a Facebook live event on October 8 to help parents, teachers and students navigate the new school year. Danielle Eadie, Clinical Director of Counseling Services at Daemen College, and Ka’Shara Jordon, Social Worker in the Niagara Falls School District, led the discussion on managing fear and uncertainty this school year and offered strategies for good mental health.

One suggestion provided by Jordon was to take things one day at a time. “Parents need to realize we are in a pandemic and it is all new to us,” she said. “You don’t have to have it all figured out.”

More than 1,000 people tuned in to participate in the discussion. You can view the complete program at The Erie County Anti-Stigma Coalition’s Facebook Page.
