We understand that this is a time of uncertainty, and we want you to know you are not alone. We are here for you.

 

 

Helpful tips to take care of your mental health:

 

  • Be mindful of your news consumption.
  • Limit your news to only one or two reliable sources like the CDC.
  • Practice acceptance and understand the news will not answer all your questions.
  • Learn about preventative and precautionary measures from reliable sources
  • Stay connected to friends and family.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate.
  • Make time to unwind and remind yourself that strong feelings will fade. Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories.
  • Take social media breaks.
  • Understand that it is normal to be somewhat concerned by this, but try to not let fear drive your anxiety to an unhealthy level.

People affected by mental health conditions are facing unique and difficult challenges during the COVID-19 crisis. Fortunately, the House and Senate passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act this week, and thanks to your advocacy, it will give immediate help to individuals struggling because of this emergency. This is a great first step, but we need your help.

 

We want to know what people with mental health conditions are experience when they try to access mental health care during the COVID-19 crisis.

 

Have you had trouble getting or staying on your mental health treatment plan? Have you had challenges getting needed medication, accessing therapy or other supports during this emergency?

 

Help power NAMI's advocacy by sharing how you've been helped during this time by your local, state or federal government-or tell us about challenges you've experienced that have hurt your ability to get mental health care.
