Mental Health Resources to Help You Weather the COVID-19 Lockdown

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and it is right on time!

During this COVID-19 pandemic, we need to be more mindful of our mental health than ever before. Our stress levels are high, our social structure has been upended, and many of us are facing economic uncertainty. The worst part? It all feels completely out of our control. So for the sake of our mental health, we should all focus on the things we CAN control. 

This is why, all throughout May, we will be sharing all the things we are doing to stay “mental healthy” and ask you all to join us in doing the same. Follow us on social media and share your favorite ways to distress.
