May is Mental Health Month

May is Mental Health Month, and it has never been more important than this year. 

Just weeks ago, we had no idea that all our worlds were going to be turned upside down by the Coronavirus. Or that the associated worry, isolation, loneliness, and anxiety would be something that literally everyone would experience. 

It take some work and focus to support our mental health in the face of uncertainty. So throughout this month, Wellness Tips will be focused on resiliency, offering tools to thrive at any time. Some of  these tools we all may have to adapt for the short term because of social distancing, but trust me – they will be more useful than ever. 

To kick off the month, attached is an infographic about COVID-19 and Your Mental Health from the national Mental Health Association, which you can work through to better understand what you may be feeling and some things you can do to feel better. Feel free to share with family and friends. 

In Wellness,
