Mental Health | Wellness Resource Guide

Mental health influences feelings, thoughts, and behavior. It can also greatly affect physical health. Try to take steps every day to care for your mental health and to support the mental health of those around you.

Acceptance

It is normal to feel added stress or anxiety at this time. The circumstances are uncertain and unpredictable. Recognize and accept that this reaction is normal.

Education

Learn more about topics that concern you. Expert insight is often only an internet search away. Quality information can allow you to make informed decisions and better understand your options.

Regulate

Accurate and up-to-date information is valuable. Constantly checking the news throughout the day can degrade mental health. Set aside specific times to check reputable resources.

Focus

Focus on factors that you can control - get quality information from trusted sources, follow a regular routine, support your health, take time to relax, and stay connected to loved ones.

Awareness

Be willing to reach out for help if you or someone you know may be struggling with mental health. There are a number of resources available to gain professional mental health assistance.

Implement

Seek out and prioritize activities that support your mental health. Set aside time each day to engage in relaxation techniques and/or mindfulness exercises.
