We are living in stressful times. COVID-19 is impacting all of our lives and affecting each of us in different ways. As this situation continues to unfold it is natural to feel scared, confused, or worried. During times like these, our health—and mental health, too—can suffer, even if we don’t really notice it. Many of us can feel, and in fact are, physically separated or removed from our routines, friends, and families. During this time, separation is often necessary for everyone’s health and safety. And while we are apart or stressed, we do not have to be alone. We may be physically separated, but we can and should stay connected. Please use this list of free resources to support you and your well being during this unprecedented time. And remember, we are in this together, we are Stronger as One.
