Socially Distant but Not Disconnected
There’s no way around it, these are troubling times. The impact of COVID-19 on our daily lives, both personal and professional, is becoming increasingly clear, and increasingly stressful. Many parts of our daily routines have changed significantly due to widespread closings of schools, workplaces, and other public spaces. For many, the safe and highly recommended practice of social distancing feels more like social isolation and hopelessness.
Here at Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana (MHANI), we know that now is not a time to socially disconnect. During these unprecedented times, we all need social connectedness more than anything else. We know that we can be socially distant but not disconnected.
That’s why we’ve moved many of our supports online, so that anyone with an Internet connection and a phone or computer can access them for free. You can see full details of how our programs have changed below.
Difficult situations like this can negatively impact mental and emotional health. Extreme stress and anxiety can make it difficult to function normally. Please have patience with yourself, your children, and your neighbors.
We’re all in this together! And now, like any other time, MHANI is here to support you.
