Staying home as much as possible helps keep ourselves and our community safer as the coronavirus pandemic grows, but it can be a challenge to mental health. Even those who are not usually prone to depression or anxiety may be experiencing the effects. And for those who already had mental illness of any kind, this may be a trying time indeed.

While living and connecting primarily through the internet may not be ideal under normal circumstances, for this kind of crisis it is an enormous aid. To help you find essential supports for maintaining your stability, we have compiled a number of great internet-based resources below.

Remember to start with the basics: sleep, nutrition, exercise, and social support, to give yourself the best foundation for managing your moods and emotions. And consider remote therapy if you need support.
