Social Emotional Resources

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a stressful time for individuals and communities. It is normal to feel anxious and/or worried while listening, reading, or watching the news. While necessary to keep up-to-date and make changes to daily life in order to help control the spread of COVID-19, the constant news cycle coupled with social distancing measures can have a real impact on mental health. It's important during times like these to monitor your own physical and mental health, as well as staying safely connected to your community. Know the signs of stress and when and how to seek help for yourself, as well as loved ones.
