Maintaining social connection virtually

Everyone has a basic need for community and social connection. Even if you are not ready for in-person socializing just yet, there are many opportunities to stay connected while practicing social distancing. If you are a student, check out Active Minds’ Student Slack Network for instant opportunities to get to know other mental health advocates across the country. A number of other organizations list or provide virtual support groups, including To Write Love on Her Arms, Mental Health America, and the Depression and Bipolar Disorder Support Alliance.
