    Finally, isolation from friends and family, job loss and death are challenges we’re all facing during these days of COVID-19. You are not alone. COVID-19 is affecting families across the world. We encourage you to stay connected with your loved ones while practicing physical distancing. It’s important that you support one other during this difficult time, especially if your loved one may be facing a mental health concern. If you or someone you know feels overwhelmed with emotions like sadness, depression or anxiety, or like you want to harm yourself or others call 911. 

     

    Remember that you are not alone. If the Mississippi Department of Mental Health can help support you, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-877-210-8513.  Continue to practice social distancing and be safe.
