COVID-19 Mental Health Reminders:

on April 2, 2020

Groom and Get Dressed Daily Even if its just into comfy sweats, you’ll feel more “normal” and productive! A little self-care is often calming and relaxing.

Maintain a Regular Meal Schedule Try to eat a variety of healthy foods, including a lot of fruit and vegetables. A health body supports a healthy mind!

Stay Connected Even though we can’t go out and visit family and friends, make sure you stay connected. Video chats or even just a phone call helps to feel less isolated.

Unplug Take a break from all the Corona Talk in your conversations and on the internet. It is stressful and can be overwhelming to be thinking of it 24-7.

Get Outside Every Day The fresh air and open space will make you feel less stuck in the house. Go for a walk (maintaining social distancing please!), bike ride or just sit out on the porch as the weather warms up.

REACH OUT Mental Health is always important but it is especially important during times like these. Reach out to someone you trust, like a social worker or teacher or our district support line. Social-emotional support hotline – 313-827-8500 or Also remember to check-in with your friends and family. We are all in this together!!
