Reading and Writing Through the Pandemic PART ONE: Our Mental Health The Erotic Reading Room

    • Arts

This is a different kind of episode of the Erotic Reading Room.  We’re taking a break from exploring genres to discuss what’s weighing on all of us – the pandemic.

This is the first of a two-part episode on how Covid-19 is impacting authors and readers in the erotic romance community. For this portion, we’ll be exploring mental health with Anne Leggett, a Virginia- licensed mental health therapist who runs Compass Pointe Therapy specializing in individual and family therapy via online sessions.

You can find her at https://www.compasspointetherapy.com

The struggle is real now. Depression is real. If it’s too much for you or someone in your family and you need immediate help, please contact the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
