COVID-19 Mental Health Support and Resources

If you are worried that someone is experiencing a mental health crisis, tell a family member or trusted adult right away. Call 911 or the police if there is any concern about anyone's safety.

The Mental Health & Recovery Services Board of Lucas County has created the COVID-19 Emotional Support Line for anyone experiencing anxiety, loneliness, depression, or other emotional challenges due to the pandemic. Access the support line by calling 419-442-0580.

ProMedica's Resource Center has a list of helpful hotlines and links to help keep you informed.

Below are free worksheets from Between Sessions Resources. The worksheets can help you and your child manage anxious thoughts related to the pandemic and one's personal health:

An article written by Erin Walsh and David Walsh in Psychology Today offers a number of online resources to help teens talk about the coronavirus.

As students make the transition to remote learning, these tips offered by Northeastern University may be helpful.

Please email Mrs. Browne (dbrowne@ohschools.org) or Mrs. Nagy (jnagy@ohschools.org) should you have any questions or concerns.
