Sara Plourde, NHPR


Going through the coronavirus pandemic is hard on everyone - businesses are closed, people are stuck at home, we have fears for our health and the economy. The shared experience is remarkable - but it’s undeniable that it’s harder on some than others. For those who’ve experienced trauma in their lives, this time can mean being cut off from resources, support systems, and routines that help make daily life manageable.

Over the course of a week, May 4-8, we will talk with people who understand trauma to gain more insight into what’s helping all kinds of people get through. We’ll learn more about how trauma affects the brain, and check in with local experts on available resources and strategies people can use to cope even during this pandemic.
