Mental Health and COVID-19

Mental health matters. Take care of yourself and be in touch with what you need to stay well. 

We’ve had to deal with a lot of changes as a result of COVID-19, from adjusting to virtual learning and social distancing to dealing with uncertainty about what comes next. If you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed, know that you are not alone. Reach out to someone you trust like a parent, teacher, or mentor, and talk to them about what you’re going through.

Speaking up and asking for help is a sign of strength.

In Your Words

I see a therapist once a week, by choice. We don’t judge and we feel safe to talk about anything with each other. It is great to have someone to talk to.          —Amber, 19
