Dear NC EAPA Family,

This is an unprecedented time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We, as a world, have been impacted in our professional and personal lives. Because our stamina is being challenged in varied ways, it is easy to experience frustration, hopelessness, compassion fatigue, and loneliness. I want you to know that NC EAPA is here for you as your professional association. I’m hoping that as fellow EA professionals that you too are taking good care of yourselves as you work to take care of everyone else!  As you continue to take care of others, let us take care of you by sharing these valuable resources below.

Please note that many professional associations are offering regular discussions for members to discuss updates regarding COVID-19 and resources for self-care and client care:
