MassSupport Network provides free community outreach and support services across the state in response to the unprecedented public health crisis, COVID-19.
The Crisis Counseling Program (CCP) is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) and managed in partnership between the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health and Riverside Trauma Center, a program of Riverside Community Care.
MassSupport offers anonymous, confidential and free help to all Massachusetts residents, organizations and communities.
Focus on what you have control over.
Self-care activities: taking a walk, yoga, mindfulness, dancing, games, anything healthy that you find fun and/or relaxing.
Connect regularly with loved ones and friends (keeping in mind health, safety and physical distancing).
Set limits on media/social media.
Focus on your and your family’s strengths (or the strengths of those around you).
Limit caffeine and alcohol. They can impact sleep and increase physical arousal and anxiety.
Engage in behaviors that promote good sleep: www.sleepassociation.org/sleep-hygiene.
