Tomorrow is World Mental Health Day
On World Mental Health Day tomorrow, remember there is nothing disordered about feeling worried, scared, or anxious because of the pandemic. It’s also important to remember that folks already living with mental health diagnoses may be struggling with more, or exacerbated symptoms. So, as we continue to walk this path, we encourage you to seek resources and support, including our mind, body, and spirit offerings on the Learning Hub.
