The world is a little scary and stressful right now because the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted many people’s lives in one way or another. Being anxious during a time like this is completely normal, but the fear and uncertainty can have a negative impact on your mental health. Now more than ever taking care of your mental health is a priority. We here at the Implementation Science and Practice Advances Research Center (iSPARC) have seen many great resources and tips come out to help people support their mental health during this crisis. We’ve pointed out some of the ones we think are the most helpful and listed them below. The resources we got these tips from are also available at the end of this tip sheet.
