Team SSRI,

Week 52. How many weeks in a year? Yep. 52!!! I never would have guessed when I first started doing these weekly e-newsletters that I would be doing it for a year.

Even as more people are logging onto popular video chat platforms to connect with colleagues, family, and friends during the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers have a warning for you: Those video calls are likely tiring you out. (This photo could easily be me).

This year has been stressful and has me feeling anxious at times, but watching this video made me so nervous! Don’t worry, Jimmy is ok.

Best,
Courtney
