Share the goodness!

“Episode” 68 of our week-daily virtual coffee, which takes place in Alpha Collective’s discord server: from 8-9am EST. It’s free and open to anyone from anywhere in the world.

On Wellness Wednesday, we discuss the Surgeon General, Dr Vivek Murthy’s social media warning as it relates to a teen mental health crisis. Regardless of your position, you need to listen.

1. Chat from today’s episode can be found in cafe-chat channel in the discord and contains very links discussed

2. We are going to move to awarding 100 “regular” roles to the first 100 people who regularly attend our live virtual coffees. Thereafter, it’ll be for entry level and full pass holder members only. Don’t worry, you got this!
