Mental Health Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

change the conversation

COVID-19 related closures have sent many of us to our home offices, kitchen counters, and dining tables for remote study or work — or none at all. For many, having to unexpectedly leave or disengage with our community – even if just for a short time – can be stressful. For others, this pandemic may be exacerbating symptoms of anxiety or other mental illnesses.

In this time of upheaval, Active Minds is here for you.
