About the Webinar:

Prior to March 2020, the intensity of unpaid caregiving was already at the epicenter of stress across the US.  Stacking a global pandemic on top of what was already impossibly heavy has led to a growing mental health crisis among the 43% of us caring for a loved one.  Alexandra Drane, Co-Founder and CEO of ARCHANGELS, a company reframing how caregivers are seen, honored, and supported, will be presenting ARCHANGELS most recent data, published by the CDC and the Journal of Affective Disorders which paints a very real picture of the mental and physical impacts of unpaid caregiving.  She’ll also share what we as communities, employers, and individuals can do to turn data into action and impact by validating unpaid caregiver’s realities, meeting and engaging them wherever they may be to connect them to support where it’s needed most.

A special opportunity for our alumni and attendees… learn your Intensity Score here. We’ll be able to talk about our own experience during this interactive and informative session.
