Mental Health Resources During Social Distancing

Changing the Conversation

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students across the country are shifting to remote learning environments, faculty are conducting classes remotely while caring for themselves and their families, and many are welcoming home young adults, partners, and other family members working remotely – or not working at all – due to nationwide efforts to #FlattenTheCurve.

Active Minds is here for you.

Find tips and tools here to help change the conversation about mental health while social distancing.

BeforeWeBegin’s Guide for Navigating the Not-so-Obvious Impacts of COVID-19

While stay-at-home mandates insulate us from outside conditions, we mustn’t forget that they also prevent the outside from seeing the conditions within the home. As we make efforts to protect our loved ones, we simultaneously increase our exposure to lesser-seen dangers that are intensified by added time behind closed doors: domestic violence, depression, suicide and food insecurity. BeforeWeBegin aims to serve those impacted by the “hidden issues” of COVID-19: those not covered by the media or discussed among neighbors in passing.

Avoiding public spaces and working remotely can help to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but for many survivors, staying home may not be the safest option. We know that any external factors that add stress and financial strain can negatively impact survivors and create circumstances where their safety is further compromised.

Anyone facing abuse of any kind can call this hotline at: 1-800-799-7233.
