The results of the American Psychological Association’s 2020 survey on stress led the organization to sound a devastating alarm: “We are facing a national mental health crisis that could yield serious health and social consequences for years to come.” Mental health professionals have a front row seat to this crisis. They have the privilege and the challenge of having profound conversations within which themes of helplessness, loss, isolation, uncertainty, and polarization are pervasive. Less expected and often generative are the “what matters now?” conversations that our unprecedented and chronic circumstances have pushed into the fore. The changes that we have been pressed to make have had unanticipated consequences; people are reevaluating their priorities.
