Coping Through Crisis

We'll get through this. But we all need a little help.

These are unprecedented times for all of us. Many adults are juggling working from home, homeschooling children, and managing elevated emotions of stress, anxiety, fear, and depression of their own and others in their family. It's a lot to deal with and many of us are struggling.  Your librarians have compiled a list of resources to help you care for yourself and those around you during this crisis. So, please be kind to yourself, and we'll see you at the library soon.

Don't see what you need here?  Email us and we'll find something for you.

If you are particularly struggling right now to cope with the mental and emotional impact of the COVID-19 public health crisis, you are not alone.  This situation is completely new and stressful for everyone, and people manage that stress differently and with varying degrees of success. Mostly, just remember that you are are not the only person having trouble coping right now and everyone is struggling in their own way.  Some of us may need extra mental health supports at this time. Whatever you are going through, you don’t have to go through it alone. Reach out for free, confidential, professional 24/7 support:

Mental Health Partners of Boulder County is also accepting clients for remote sessions.
