“There are so many things that are out of our control right now. The COVID19 pandemic has caused stress and anxiety for most of us. While physical distancing helps keep our bodies healthy, it takes a toll on our mental health.

Now more than ever, we need to use the resources at our disposal to stay connected. Check in with someone you haven’t seen or spoken with much lately via call or FaceTime! Hear their voice and really check in – see how they are doing. If they are struggling, head to the links below to help find them professional supports. We’re in this together.”

– Andrew Harris
