In this extraordinary time we can all use some support...

The COVID-19 epidemic has rapidly become an unprecedented situation that continues to grow. Not only are we seeing the physical effects of the illness, but also the social impact it is causing. Millions of people in the U.S alone have lost their jobs, closed their businesses, and have been forced to self-isolate (“social distancing”) as we attempt to curve the rate of exposure. It truly is a scary situation and many of us are left experiencing high levels of anxiety and depression. While it’s true that we have no control over what is happening, we do have control in other areas of our lives. In situations like these it is absolutely necessary that we pay special attention to the important choices we can make to keep us safe and also contribute to our mental wellness. Below are a some resources including articles, hotlines, and apps that can help us practice healthy coping strategies while we continue to support one another and focus on keeping one another safe.
