Coping-19 Addresses Mental Health, Stressors, and Personal Experiences onset by COVID-19 and Connects Us With Important Tips and Resources
It’s okay not to be okay right now. That’s the message Coping-19, an online resource dedicated to providing resources to help people do more than just cope, wants you to remember. The website (Coping-19.org) is the fruit of a collaboration between the Ad Council and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), designed to offer helpful tips, tools and resources to get us through this unexpected and unsettling time.
The site was created in partnership with mental health experts and offers ideas on how to take care of ourselves, resources for dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, isolation and sleeplessness. It also connects visitors with information on exercise, nutrition, family activities, medical guidance, quarantine, crisis support and much more.
“From working at home and caring for family to being on the frontline as an essential worker, each experience is unique, important, and matters. Know that you are not alone and many others might be feeling similar emotions as you.”
