Mental Health Help in Montgomery County, Maryland

 

These are challenging and stressful times as we cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus can affect everyone in emotional and physical ways.

The current COVID-19 situation can exacerbate domestic violence and human trafficking and add additional challenges for those with existing mental health concerns. The County’s 24-hour Crisis Center provides telephone help for anyone in crisis. The Crisis Center number is 240-777-4000.

Covid-19 County mental health resources can be found here:

https://montgomerycountymd.gov/…/Coronavirus-mentalhealth.h…

Mental health professionals from the County’s Department of Health and Human Services have the following guidance to deal with stress during this time of crisis:

➡️ It is natural and okay to feel anxious and overwhelmed; times are uncertain and difficult right now

➡️Work individually and together to find creative ways to keep anxiety in check

➡️It is important to find time to take care of ourselves and our mental health, so we can ultimately look out for each other

➡️Limit time focusing on news headlines can worsen anxiety

➡️Stick to the facts about COVID-19 and what is being done to combat it

➡️Turn off the television and limit social media consumption

➡️When possible, connect with friends and loved ones through video chats and other online platforms; share your tips for relaxation

➡️Get outside to exercise but remember to keep your distance from others

➡️Take deep breaths

➡️Eat right and get enough sleep

➡️Help others in your community

Roy, this was brought up in the news, and now have heard of some issues within my neighborhood, sadly.   Being cooped up for long periods sometimes are not the best idea.

Hello Roy - life goes on even when other things can become distractions of sorts so it is wise to remember/remind people of the importance of mental health along with the services that are available.
