Managing Stress In Self-Isolation

#ItsOkayToNotBeOkay

Due to the shutdown imposed to reduce the spread of COVID-19, many of us have been wrested from the comfort of our daily routine. We no longer are able to meet loved ones & family, and our other social connections have become restricted to a digital space. This can give rise to stress or anxiety. It is important for our mental well-being that we connect with friends and family in a safe way, ensure we are staying healthy with enough exercise and food.

If you are experiencing stress, anxiety, panic or depression, and if you require emotional support related to COVID-19, do reach out to any of the following community resources (at no cost):
