WHAT'S HAPPENING?!

A message from NAMI Colorado:

 

 Try this perspective shift. Instead of seeing ‘social distancing’ and travel bans as panic, try seeing them as acts of mass cooperation 

intended to protect the collective whole. This plan is not about individuals going into hiding. It’s a global deep breath...an agreement 

between humans around the planet to be still. Be still, in hopes that the biggest wave can pass without engulfing too many 

of the vulnerable amongst us."
