Recently added to OPEN Source: Last week, California Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke-Harris released two Stress Management Playbooks to help Californians mitigate the effects of stress brought on by the massive changes to our daily lives during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. One guide is for parents and caregivers to help recognize and alleviate stress in young children. You can find that resource here:
