Check out Room For Her Talks! New webinar series kicks off on Monday June 13

Greenshield is excited to announce the launch of Room For Her Talks, a new webinar series featuring conversations with therapists and wellness experts about women's mental health. The series begins on Monday June 13 at 1 p.m. ET with a discussion titled What Does Caregiver Empowerment Look Like?


In this one-hour conversation, it's all about caregiver burnout and learning to take care of you, too. We'll discuss how the division of labour impacts women's mental health, including recognizing signs of caregiver burnout and, most importantly, how to build better boundaries and take care of ourselves. Supporting the conversation is Yasmine Cheyenne, a therapist and founder of The Sugar Community App, a self-care toolbox built for everyone, especially those who play the role of caregiver in their life.
