Resources to help you stay grounded

September 21, 2020 Providence Mental Health Team

 

Let’s be clear, it’s challenging to stay above all the negative energy in the world right now. As difficult as it may seem, support abounds. Whether it’s a family member, a neighbor or even a complete stranger, there are people and resources out there to help you cope and even thrive during these uncertain times.

If you or a loved one is impacted by the West Coast wildfires, or a family member continues to struggle with living in a socially distanced culture, we want to help you cope and manage your stress. Now more than ever, it's important to find some harmony in our lives. 

In an effort to ease your way in finding help, we’ve compiled reference sources that we hope provide outlets and guidance to keep your mind, body and soul healthy.
