This has been especially challenging for our youth who were  isolated from their friends and cut off from their extracurricular activities during the pandemic. In this online event, we will explore how technology has been both a blessing and curse during the pandemic, how to assist our kids in forming healthy habits in their tech use, and how our Orthodox Church practices can help us manage our digital lives. We will also look at the impact of technology on mental health and discuss the exciting new projects of the Task Force on Mental Health of the Assembly of Bishops.
