Fear won’t win.

Hope will not be cancelled.

The news circulating around the world right now about Coronavirus (COVID-19) can cause our anxiety to soar and our worry to grow. There are a lot of practical and important steps to take, but we want to also talk about what you can do to encourage calm and support your mental health well-being in a time of uncertainty. And as always, we are here to remind you: You are not alone. We’re in this together.

Self-care tips

It’s important to practice self-care and things that support emotional and mental health during stressful times. Here are some suggestions:

Blogs to read

Stories have a way of reminding us we are not alone. Knowing that what we are feeling and experiencing is also shared and understood by others offers us comfort and connection. May these stories from the TWLOHA blog be a source of hope for you right now.

Downloads

In the coming days ahead, many of us will be spending more time at home. To help you navigate that transition, we’ve created a Work From Home guide, along with some downloads like coloring pages to decorate your space with hope, and wallpapers and social media images to act as a gentle nudge to focus on the good that remains.
