As part of the Drupal Community Working Group's (CWG) continuing expansion of their Community Health Team, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Michelle Drapkin, a Behavior Scientist and Clinical Psychologist, as one of our two mental health subject matter experts. This team will focus on proactive programs to help promote the overall health of the Drupal community. With the COVID-19 pandemic causing various levels of anxiety for individuals around the world, we are working to provide resources to community members.
On May 22, 2020, we hosted this Wellbeing Hour with Dr. Drapkin, who walked us through some strategies to support our wellbeing during this challenging time. Dr. Drapkin is an expert in evidence-based approaches to managing stress and anxiety and will give us a tour down a buffet of options to support our health and wellbeing. We learned a taste of using present-moment awareness to manage your stress and learn about leaning into your values, changing your relationship with your thoughts, and being more intentional with communication to support your relationships (at work and home!).
