The past couple of years have been marked by a number of challenging events, and many people are struggling to cope with the emotional impact of these experiences. Whether we have a direct connection to these events or simply feel the weight of the world as members of a larger society, it's important to acknowledge the toll they can take on our mental health and well-being.
