Community Mental Health Resources During Covid-19

The outbreak of COVID-19 may be stressful for many people and families.  The CDC indicates that “Taking Care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress.  Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.”

Recommendations for managing stress during these uncertain times include:

  • Tending to your physical needs
    • Exercise
    • Spend time outside
    • Practice deep breathing techniques
    • Get plenty of sleep
    • Drink water
    • Make efforts to eat well-balanced meals
  • Taking breaks from reading, watching, or listening to the news and social media
  • Make time to unwind by trying or doing some other activities you enjoy that you don’t typically have time for
  • Connect with others

If you are still struggling with your feelings, students might reach out to their school counselor.  Families might also consider seeking assistance from local mental health agencies. 

If there is an emergency or threat of imminent danger, please always call 911. 


If you or a loved one is struggling with suicidal thoughts or feelings, please refer to the following link:
