Mental Healthcare

Talking to family and friends, minimizing upsetting media content, and making a plan for what to do during stressful and overwhelming times can reduce stress. Mental and behavioral healthcare can help build skills and capacities for resilience in the context of a safe, supportive, and trusting clinical relationship. 

Resources and support are available if you want them. 

  • Talk with your family or friends about how everyone is feeling. 
  • Minimize news or other media content that feels upsetting. 
  • Make a plan for what to do when you get stressed, angry, or overwhelmed. 
  • Reach out for support.
