    Dear Seaholm Community,

    There are so many experiences in life that we are uncertain of, that we are afraid of, that we have no control over, that we should find safe, empathic confidants to discuss sensitive topics with so that we can maintain our own sense of peace in a very troubled world. Please know that the counselors are here for you. If you would like to talk, please reach out to any of us.

    Sincerely,
    Kristy Fekaris, Nicole Festian, Brian Flatter, Walt Romano, Jenn Vanderveen, Sherree Wilson
