Your Week With Isabel
We would like to engage with you. Isabel creator Anna Westbrook regularly curates online learning experiences that can help you maintain healthy survivor-supporter relationships. She crafted the outline for the 2019 online Isabel experience out of a deep desire to have coffee regularly with everyone who has chosen to support Isabel. As that cannot realistically be accomplished, she hopes social media will serve as a unifying force.
As Anna plans the Isabel posts, she imagines herself having coffee with you and hearing about your community. Then she creates short, manageable, positive messages that she would want you to discuss with your friends.
With the goal of keeping your interactions manageable, she tries not to post across the Isabel platforms on Fridays or Saturdays unless there is an Isabel event happening on one of those days. And she tries to take a break during the last week of each month so that she has time to reflect and keep the content you are consuming positive and refreshing. You can sample each social media page in the summaries below. And of course, you are welcome to reach out to Anna directly if you would like to request an actual coffee date.
Isabel Facebook Expectations

Schedule: Sunday - Thursday | one post @ lunch time | first 3 weeks of month
Note: If we are sharing articles with content that may be triggering, we post after 5 p.m. instead. This way, our followers are more likely to see the content during leisure hours and their work hours will not be interrupted by a difficult experience.
