"Lunchtime Moment of Mindfulness"
Bi-Weekly Wednesdays at 11:45 am:

Join in virtually from any location convenient to you for a lunchtime moment of self-care with a dose of mindfulness and reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the workday.  We want to make this space comfortable for any and all child psychiatrists and team members who want to join a team of wellness proponents who prioritize even 10 minutes of intentional break-time in their busy schedules. The benefits are countless and can prove helpful for both experiencing the free time in its own right and ongoing productivity as your day continues.

Antiracism, Anti-Asian
Sponsored by NYCCAP's Antiracism Taskforce
Dear NYCCAP Family,

NYC has over 1 million Asian Americans in the city proper, making it the city with the largest total Asian population in the US. The impact of anti-Asian sentiments is felt in our patients, our friends, and our colleagues. This is a critical time to commit ourselves to combat racism of all kinds. Let's mobilize and use the power and privilege we hold as child and adolescent psychiatrists individually, and as members of any organizations we are part of to further equity and justice for all. Please join us in any way you can as we stand with AACAP nationally in this fight and contribute locally.

In solidarity,
NYCCAP's Anti-Racism Taskforce
