A New Norm

A New Norm reflects the feelings of those of us who struggle with anxiety, depression, grief, anger, doubt, shame, fear, and more - yet provides encouragement that there is hope and help is available. Our hope is that this story and the discussion guide that follows will become a springboard for conversation to define what our dark clouds are and how we can make efforts to find the light of our new norm.

A New Norm is the result of a partnership between Avera and Children's Home Society of South Dakota, in a joint effort to promote mental wellness. Purchases will benefit the mission of both organizations.
