We usually check in with you in-person with our engaging and uplifting programs. But we can’t right now because of COVID-19: to help keep people safe we must follow CDC guidelines.
What can we do to stay connected?
We can get creative, adapt, practice resilience, and bring you a modified version of our Fresh Check Day program, Check In At Home! We’ve put together activities that can be done at home. Check In At Home is for anyone, anywhere. It’s especially important to check-in on your mental health while you’re in quarantine. Here are six activities that will help reduce stress, get your body moving, put you in a positive mindset, and more!
Share on social media how you’ll Check In At Home with these hashtags:
We acknowledge that this is a difficult time—no school, homeschooling, no in-person socializing, cancelled sports and events, remote work, lay-off’s, and more. It can feel overwhelming, scary, isolating, and lonely. But, we have the tools at our fingertips to help each other. Even in physical isolation, we can still find ways to connect.
Get Connected to Help
Please reach out for help if you need to chat or talk. Here are resources to get you to the help you need.
You can get support from a licensed therapist from home during times of high stress and anxiety with TalkSpace. Learn more.
Teen Line hotline staffed by trained teens and supervised by mental health professionals is OPEN from 6-9PM every evening for youth to talk about their struggles with a teen. Text ‘TEEN’ to 839863 or email our hotline. We also offer message boards for teens to talk to other teens, including anxiety around the Covid-19 virus, as well as support resources for parents.
Please, keep going. Practice self-care. Be present and helpful to your friends, loved ones, and community. Reconnect with the things that bring you a sense of peace, and find new ways of coping amidst the COVID-19 chaos. Yes, this is hard. Yes, this is different. But you can do it. We will get through it, together. Take it one day at a time. Stay safe, be well, and remember, even in isolation, you are not alone.
