And, Washington Listens: "2020 has been a stressful year. We will get through this year together, but while we are on the journey through these trying times it is normal to feel overwhelmed. If you are feeling stressed, angry, sad, numb, afraid, or just worn out so are we. Don’t try to manage these feelings alone if you are feeling overwhelmed or that nobody is listening. We are here for you, we are listening." Washington Listens: 1.833.681.0211
