Coronavirus (COVID-19) mental health resources


During the time of an emerging infectious disease outbreak such as the coronavirus (COVID-19), there is frequently a great deal of uncertainty about the nature of the disease, its spread, and its scope and impact. This may lead to significant and understandable emotional distress, even among those who have not been directly exposed to the disease. 


We have developed some useful resources to support health practitioners and community members during the pandemic.
