COVID-19 – Coping with Anxiety and Stress
As we navigate this unprecedented crisis, its imperative that we tend to our mental well-being. Concerns for our health and the health of our loved ones, a stream of sometimes confusing and contradictory information, disruptions to routines, worry about the impact on personal finances and uncertainty about how and when life will return to some semblance of normal – these are just a few ways COVID-19 has impacted our mental health.
During this time of heightened anxiety, we know that you or a loved one may need someone to talk to. Please know that our phone, text and chat call specialists are available 24/7 to listen and provide support.
This service is free and open to all members of our community. You do not have to be in crisis to connect with us. Reach out even if you are just looking for ways to support someone you are concerned about.
EveryMind staff have recorded a webinar with tips and tools to help manage stress and anxiety.
