Your Mental Health is Important

Isolation, disconnection, waiting for good times again, incidents of racism, hatred and bigotry, missing loved ones. We've all experienced these feelings and moments during the pandemic and it can be tough to overcome these trials and to take stock of everything that is thrown at us. Sometimes we need a helping hand to guide us and get us back up on our feet.

Review the below resources at Yale to help support your mental health - it's important.
