11 Aug COVID-19 Update: Your Mental Health and Well-Being
Just like in all families, our team at With A Little Help is committed to being here to support you in multiple ways. As we continue on, in the midst of this pandemic, the common denominator that we hear about most often is not surrounding the physical illness but the toll that it is taking on our mental health. It’s a growing concern as we continue down this path of quarantine, self-isolation, and social distancing. It is affecting all of us in one form or another, so we wanted to share some resources that we have found to be beneficial.

This website provides “resources for anxiety and your mental health in a global climate of uncertainty”. In addition to being a resource for mental health, the site also provides a toolkit for all types of encouragement during this time; including a daily mantra and free meditations.
Additional resources to support mental health can be found on the Washington State Coronavirus Response (COVID-19) website.
It seems that many are experiencing precautionary fatigue, but we want to encourage you, for the safety of yourself and others, to continue to exercise basic safety protocols and precautions.
