As Covid-19 sweeps across the community, many are afraid for the health of ourselves and loved ones. People are forced to put their work and incomes on hold, homeschooling kids and everyone everywhere must stay away from social situations. It’s scary, isolating, and can be lonely. The Crisis Text Line is a free service that provides mental health support, 24/7 via text message.
The Covid-19 outbreak has caused shifts in how we communicate with one-another, and the words we use in those communications. Families can prioritize their mental health when feeling anxious and lonely by turning off Coronavirus news updates, connecting with friends by scheduling virtual hangouts, and reaching out for help by texting HOME to 741741 to connect with a Crisis Text Line Crisis Counselor. Social distancing may be lonely, but you’re not alone. Click here for more info about the Crisis Text Line
