“Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo, it was wonderful to engage with families in this way and see so many beautiful pictures of families enjoying time together during this pandemic, and photos that also showed how hard it can be to be apart,” said Nathalie Ouellette, Senior Manager Child and Youth Mental Health Services at Hands.
