Tips to Improve Your Mental Health

 While our counselors are an invaluable resource during these unfamiliar times, there are a number of ways you can improve mental wellness:

  • Talk to someone you trust about your feelings
  •  Maintain a schedule or routine as much as possible
  • Take breaks from media exposure about the crisis 
  • Eat right and get some exercise
  • Reach out to loved ones by phone or other technology 
  • Go for a walk or participate in other outdoor activities
  • Enjoy a fun family activity

How Video Conferencing Works

We’ll use Zoom to conduct appointments via video conference. Your mental healthcare professional will email you with the details needed to join a Zoom meeting. Watch this short video to get familiar with the technology. You will need to download software but will be provided the link to do so in your email.
