Emotional Wellbeing

Everyone faces challenges in their life that can impact their mental health. Like all parts of our physical health, our emotional and intellectual spheres make up our mental health and also require regular check-ups. This has been a difficult and uncertain year, balancing work demands and self-care has been challenging for many. This pandemic has exceled rates of excessive stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance use. Now more than ever is the time to reduce mental health stigma, which is often what gets in the way of individuals seeking help. It is critical for us to normalize mental health to begin the healing process from long-lasting impacts of the pandemic. Below are a few mental wellbeing resources.
