Mental Health has never been more important than this year.
As the number of cases of COVID-19 increases, so does the associated anxiety. For the general public, the mental health effects of COVID-19 are as essential to address as are the physical health effects. And for the one in five who already have mental health conditions – or the one in two who are at risk of developing them – we need to take personal, professional, and policy measures now to address them. To aid individuals and communities during this time, MHAoPC has compiled a range of resources and information for all of our community members.
Started in May 2020, Mental Health America of Putnam County (MHAoPC) is proud to share and explore topics that can help you build your own set of #Tools2Thrive. These areas include: recognizing and owning your feelings; connecting with others; finding the positive after loss; eliminating toxic influences; creating healthy routines; and supporting others – all as ways to boost the mental health and general wellness of you and your loved ones. We’re so happy to be able to share these!
