Mental Health Toolkit for Youth, Parents and Caregivers:
COVID-19 and Sonoma County’s Shelter in Place order have drastically changed our daily lives. This can bring up a lot of fear, anxiety, and even grief as plans are canceled, social distancing happens, and daily routines are completely altered. It’s a lot to process. To help during this time, SAY’s mental health clinicians have complied a few simple suggestions for how to help support young people in your life that may be struggling right now.
