Team SSRI,

Week 36.

Let’s start this week off with an amazing video. Back in the ’60s, Marta González was a New York City Ballet dancer. Despite developing Alzheimer’s later in life, she never forgot her Swan Lake routine. This video will give you all the feels. I’m not crying. You’re crying.

With so many people working and schooling fr0m home, online riddles have become a thing (or so I have been told).
Solve the Riddle: There’s a one-story house in which everything is yellow. Yellow walls, yellow doors, yellow furniture. What color are the stairs?
Answer: There aren’t any steps—it’s a one-story house.

A huge thank you to everyone who joined the SSRI Lunch-n-Learn last week. I hope you have saved the date of December 2nd @ 12 :30 pm when we will watch and discuss “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man”. So no homework or planning ahead for this one. Just jump on the Zoom to join.

With the holidays upon us, it’s even more important to protect your mental health. Please remember to pace yourself and take breaks (from all forms of media).
