She has also spent the last decade visiting schools with her anti-bully rock & roll assembly program (the Josh & Gab show). These experiences have given Gab a unique perspective on this particular mental health crisis in kids. 

In her presentation, The Kids Are Not Okay - practicing empathy for everyone, even yourself, Gab will discuss the pain and suffering she has personally experienced during our pandemic. In addition, Gab will share stories from parents, teachers, and students she has interviewed on the subject. (Gab is preparing the video clips she will share with us for a potential documentary).
