Fear and anxiety about a new disease can be overwhelming, causing strong emotions in adults and children. Many people are experiencing anxiety and depression over Covid worries and stress caused by political, economic and social justice issues. According to the American Psychological Association, stress levels are at record highs.

You or someone you care about may be experiencing symptoms such as these:
• Fear and worry about your own health, the health of your loved ones, your financial situation or job, or loss of support services.
• Changes in sleep or eating patterns.
• Difficulty sleeping or concentrating.
• Worsening of chronic health problems.
• Worsening of mental health conditions.
• Increased use of tobacco, alcohol or other substances.
