In an effort to document the unique Zeitgeist of the COVID-19 pandemic, Crossing the Divide has created a limited video series, Life Under Lockdown, where we interview individuals, businesses and organizations impacted by a society in limbo while the battle against an insidious disease rages all around us. How has a life under lockdown altered our realities and how will it continue to shape human existence moving forward? To keep our podcast listeners occupied while we channel efforts toward this video endeavor, we are releasing the audio track from this video, recorded via Zoom and available in video format on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. Episode 4 examines the challenges and surprising upsides of maintaining D51 student counseling and mental health support services during the extended school closure caused by the coronavirus outbreak. How is the district pivoting internally to more seamlessly provide remote learning and services in the future? And how can school districts bear the increasing demands placed on public institutions of learning? This episode features a group conversation with D51 Counseling Coordinator Shauna Hobbs; Suicide Prevention Specialist Gen Morris; and SEL Specialist Heather O'Brien.
