How to Prevent Loneliness in a Time of Social Distancing
Here's Advice for Preserving Your Mental Health While Avoiding Physical Proximity
With increasing numbers of people isolated because of quarantine and social distancing, COVID-19 is not the only public health threat we should be worried about-loneliness is one as well.

Manage Anxiety & Stress
The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Coping with stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger.
Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations.  How you respond to the outbreak can depend on your background, the things that make you different from other people, and  the community you live in.


Mental Health Matters Day Postponed

Mental Health Matters Day must be suspended. Once we have clear guidance on when public events/gatherings can resume, we will move forward with determining another date. Thank you for your continued support.
