T-MAPs

Transformative Mutual Aid Practices (T-MAPs) are a set of tools that provide space for building a personal “map” of wellness strategies, resilience practices, unique stories, and community resources.

Your T-MAP is a guide for navigating challenging times, figuring out what you care about, and communicating with the important people in your life
