Extension educators work with local leaders to create healthier communities. We apply the research and resources of UW-Madison to help:
- Promote positive mental health by teaching skills to manage stress more effectively, practice self-care and reduce risky substance use by youth and adults.
- Build community skills, tools and resources to promote health.

Grief, loss and new traditions during the holidays
Feelings of grief and loss can be particularly strong around the holidays. The drastic changes to our routine, traditions, and way of life we’ve experienced due to COVID-19 adds another layer to grief and loss. We hope these resources are helpful. If you need assistance, please contact your local Extension educator.
