Mental Health & Self-Care

It is important to understand that outbreaks can be stressful for both children and adults alike. That being said, everyone will react differently to this stressful situation.  Now, more than ever, it is important to try to maintain positive mental health practices and coping mechanisms.


A pandemic does not give anyone the right to violate your boundaries and everyone has the right to change their boundaries at any time, without backlash, if that person deems it necessary for their mental health and well-being.

SAMHSA’s National Helpline is a free, confidential, 24/7, 365-day-a-year treatment referral and information service (in English and Spanish) for individuals and families facing mental and/or substance use disorders.
