On May 21, 2020, school public relations professional in the state of Georgia hosted their first-ever webinar professional learning for its members. The topic, 'Charging Station', focused on wellness with four mental health and social services professionals serving as panelists.
The GSPRA Board brought the session together after cancelling their in-person learning event due to COVID-19. They saw the need to still provide members with tangible tips that could help them through their increasing workloads while dealing with the mental mindfulness a pandemic presents to their personal and professional lives.
There were 30 professionals from Georgia and across the country that attended the free hour-long session. During the discussions, the panelists shared tips about mindfulness, relaxation techniques, balancing work and home, and more.
