The pandemic and “shelter at home” orders have upended nearly everyone’s lives, resulting in widespread anxiety, fear, and depression. Trans and non-binary people – especially those of us who also have experienced trauma – may be particularly stressed. To help you learn simple self-help techniques for this difficult time, FORGE is creating a series of short how-to videos.

Even people without anxiety disorders may be feeling anxious now, given the pandemic and all the social changes that have come with it. This simple and comforting video explains how you can focus on your senses anywhere you are to feel calmer and more grounded, anytime you need to.
