Resilience Tips During the Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major effect on our lives. Many are facing challenges that can be stressful, overwhelming, and cause strong emotions in adults and children. It is natural to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry during the COVID-19 pandemic. Below are a few recommendations to help yourself, children, and families manage stress:
- California's playbook on Stress Relief during COVID-19 provides guidance on how to notice stress in kids and outlines tools and strategies on how to reduce stress for children and adults.
- Promote healthy nutrition, sleep, and physical activity habits and self-care.
- Discuss and share stress reduction strategies.
- Encourage adults and children to talk with people they trust about their concerns and feelings.
- Communicate openly and often with adults, children, and families about mental health support services available in the community.
- Consider contacting CalHOPE and the national distress hotline: 1-800-985-5990, or text TalkWithUs to 66746.
- Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255), 1-888-628-9454 for Spanish, or Lifeline Crisis Chat if anyone is feeling overwhelmed with emotions such as sadness, depression, or anxiety; or call 911 if someone feels like they want to harm themselves or others.
