Don't let COVID-19 ruin your relationships

Our message of hope is for everyone: human connection is still possible and vital.

In these unprecedented times of facing worldwide health and economic concerns due to COVID-19, there is a powerful solution to fear, loneliness, and stress, and it is available to everyone. The solution is healthy relationships.

We reject the phrase social distancing because it deprives us of what we need most. We suggest calling the mandate physical distancing and practice social connecting. Healthy relationships and connections will strengthen your immune system as a defense against the virus.

Safe Conversations can be practiced in-person as well as by video, call, or text. Social connecting is still possible even with physical distance.
