These are strange times we are living in. You might be feeling sad, anxious, angry, or confused. You might even find your day-to-day living situation adds more stress and anxiety. Just a few weeks ago, you might have gone to a friend’s house to talk, play a game, or just chill. But, we are social distancing, so that isn’t an option. There is still help and support for you. 

Here is a list of resources staffed by trained professionals you can talk, text, or chat with asap.
