According to Dr. Cheryl Wardell–Young, a local psychiatrist and sorority member, “Whether it’s caring for a spouse, child or aging parents, caregivers do what is needed to take care of their loved ones.”
The virtual event will feature testimonials from caregivers and discussion topics about the importance of good mental health habits, extending grace to yourself and understanding when to say no, and when to ask for help.
