  1. If there was ever a time to pay attention to our mental health, it’s this year.

    Today a writers’ group I’m a member of featured an author suffering from PTSD. He remarked that writing (and reading) has been his path toward healing, a good thing. So, Barbara, you are contributing here to your readers’ improved mental outlook. 🙂

    1. I agree, Marian. This is the time when our mental health is more important than ever. It’s great to see that your writers’ group is also discussing this. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      1. There is a free version and a paid version. After using the app for a couple years I upgraded to the premium service because it is so good and I want to support the company and the teachers. I look forward to hearing how you like it.

  2. I would say mental health services around the world are quite busy in these trying times. I feel especially for our youth and for seniors in long-term care facilities.
