The COVID-19 pandemic has caused disruption in almost every facet of life. The schedules and routines that help to structure the day and give space for people to grow have been entirely changed. We are both socially isolated and more together than ever! And that is to say nothing of the stress from the economic downturn, threat to physical health, and the unstopping stream of bad news from the media.
All of this adds up to new stresses and challenges for everyone. If we know that it is important to eat well and exercise to maintain our physical health and brush our teeth to maintain dental health, then it should come as no surprise that we also need to establish practices and resources to maintain mental health. There are several organizations in Elkhart County that can help to provide tools and resources during this difficult, stressful time.
