Mental Health & COVID-19 — AFSP

We are amid an unprecedented public health crisis, yet we also have an extraordinary opportunity to come together within our families and our communities to reduce the stigma that often surrounds mental health.

AFSP encourages everyone to engage in an open, honest dialogue with their friends and loved ones, to demonstrate compassion and kindness, and to practice self-care by exercising, meditating, and consuming the news in measured doses. And, reach out to those who may be isolated and need the extra support. These actions can save lives and positively change our collective culture surrounding mental health for the long-term.  We hope these tools help you to spread positive messages of hope, compassion, mental health care and suicide prevention.

Through our close-knit AFSP family across the country, we will get through it together
