Your Mental Health is Important

In addition to avoiding contracting or spreading COVID-19 , our mental, emotional and physical health are just as important during this time. We want to encourage everyone to reach out, following social distancing guidelines, to your friends, loved ones, neighbors, and those people in your life that may be isolated to share information and be of service. If you are in crisis, please call the County Crisis Hotline at 1(855) 278-4204.

People with preexisting mental health conditions should continue with their treatment and be aware of new or worsening symptoms. Additional information can be found at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) website.

Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress. Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.

Things you can do to support yourself

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate
  • Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.

Call your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row.

The County of Santa Clara Behavioral Health Services website has some great resources, in several languages, to support your wellness and ability to effectively cope during this time.

Community Solutions continues to provide services during this time.
