Guide for Healthy Minds

A MESSAGE FROM OUR SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY COUNCIL ON THE WEIGHT OF A WORLD IN CRISIS


The world is in crisis, and to many observers it can wreak havoc on their mental health. COVID-19, the economic downturn, and now the Russia-Ukraine war. Disturbing videos and photos are flooding news outlets and social media. It is almost too much for anyone to process. Mental health professionals know that these stressful times can trigger a variety of mental health problems, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and substance abuse. Children are particularly vulnerable, especially when the adults around them are struggling. For those who are concerned about their or their loved ones’ mental health during these unsettling times, there is help.

The mental health movement is here. Are you in?
