Manage Coronavirus-related Stress

March 17, 2020

Manage Your Stress Levels - Help Is Available!


Your Mental Health is important! Keep all of your behavioral healthcare appointments. You may receive care in new ways, like over the telephone or even by video chat. Call your behavioral healthcare provider directly for more information about appointments. 


Manage Coronavirus-related stress.

Make sure to unplug from time to time to take a break from the news and social media. Take time to do things you enjoy like go for a walk outside or read a book. Talk to friends and families about your concerns, and be there for others when they need someone to talk to also.  

Get information about COVID-19 from a trusted resource such as our local health departments and the Center for Disease Control. Ask questions to an expert at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH
