Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health and substance use challenges and deaths by suicide had been on the rise. The far reaching and lingering impacts of COVID-19 have exacerbated these issues by increasing stress, fear, worry, and a sense of grief in both collective and uniquely individual ways. This page includes help resources, articles,and podcasts to help us understand these impacts and how we can help ourselves and our loved ones.
