During these challenging times of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we the CSCT Board of Directors would like to extend a message of support and encouragement to our members.
The principle of practicing self-care is essential at this stressful time.
Please remember that although we are physically distant from each other, it’s important to reach out to one another for support.
Our Facebook page can help reach out to colleagues and share your experiences and preferred coping strategies.
Most importantly, thank you for your exemplary service representing our profession during these extraordinary times. We hope both you and your family are staying safe and well.
“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.”– Thich Nhat Hanh
