Mental Health Resources
Because we are managing the tasks of daily life amidst a global health pandemic and a national crisis, it is imperative that we focus individually on our mental health, show ourselves grace and compassion, and admit that it’s ok to not be ok.
We can “Be Kind to our Mind” by remembering the following tips:
- Pause. Breath. Think about how you feel
- Take breaks from reading the news and social media
- Make time to sleep and to exercise
- Reach out to family, friends, co-workers, etc. Stay connected!
- Seek help if you feel overwhelmed or unsafe.
