Our mental health affects everything in our lives, sometimes in ways we don’t even realize. Everyone has dealt with a down or off day, while others experience more long-term effects. It’s important to remember that you are never alone. Especially with the times we are going through now, everyone deals with stress, anxiety, and more issues related to mental health. This is why we all need to take the time to check in with ourselves or with someone to keep our mental state in check. Maybe you need twenty minutes a day to meditate, or perhaps you need an hour of therapy; everyone’s mind is different! As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, we are here to give you some ideas for monitoring and improving your mental health from home with some simple mobile apps.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

—Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Here are a few tips from the CDC to cope with stress during COVID-19:

Be Kind to Your Mind

      1. PAUSE .Breathe. Notice how you feel.
      2. TAKE BREAKS from COVID-19 content.
      3. MAKE TIME to sleep, exercise, and eat healthily.
      4. REACH OUT and stay connected with someone.
      5. SEEK HELP if you feel overwhelmed or unsafe.


If you, or someone you care about, are feeling overwhelmed with emotions like sadness, depression, or anxiety, or feel like you want to harm yourself or others
