How to cope with COVID-19 and social distancing:

 

You may have heard the term “social distancing.” Social distancing is a way to keep people healthy by lowering the amount of people in one space. This is why many businesses and organizations are currently closed, and why people are urged to stay home as much as possible. This can be difficult if you struggle with depression, anxiety, or other mental health challenges. However, this can also be a time to reflect, reach out to others, and practice self-care.

 

Below is a list of positive activities you can do even if you have to stay home. There is also a list of crisis hotlines on the back in case you are in crisis and need to speak with someone right away.
