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.
