Mental Health Resources
Prioritizing your mental health and staying connected to your family, friends, and community is more important than ever. Daily stress caused by COVID-19, physical distancing, and the August 2020 derecho have had a big impact on our community. It is normal to experience feelings of isolation, anxiety, and uncertainty in this abnormal situation. Additionally, the events of the two years have only intensified feelings among those living with poor mental health or a mental illness.
