Mental Health

It’s okay not to feel okay. Many people may feel anxious or scared at this time. These are normal responses to unexpected or stressful situations. Disruption to daily routines and distance from family and friends is hard. Reach out to those you care about by phone or video chat, stay active at home, eat healthy meals and get plenty of rest.

If you need mental or emotional support, do not hesitate to reach out for help at no charge.
