Mental Health During COVID-19
COVID-19 continues to impact our lives in a variety of ways. Living through a global pandemic has impacted people’s physical and emotional health and well-being.
In addition to the concerns our community had about COVID itself, there have been many ripple effects including social isolation and uncertainty about the future. Our most recent national reckoning with racial violence has also had an impact on mental health.
The good news is there are lots of things each of us can do to support and maintain our mental health, even during these uncertain times. Please refer to the information and resources below for self-care tips and online support.
