Mental Health Resources

The COVID-19 pandemic brought on a swift and sudden disruption in our lives. Families have had to transition to working and learning from home while providing for the health and safety of their loved ones. These times can be especially stressful. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Stress during an infectious outbreak can include:

  • Fear and worry about your own health and the health of your loved ones
  • Changes in sleep or eating patterns
  • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
  • Worsening of chronic health problems
  • Worsening of mental health conditions
  • Increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs

If you or a loved one is feeling overwhelmed with emotions like sadness, depression, or anxiety, there is help.

Hidalgo Cares has compiled a list of federal, state, and local resources for mental health and wellbeing during this COVID-19 crisis. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay well.
