During such a fraught and unprecedented time, when the unknown seems to be the only constant, it’s important to keep tabs on our own mental health, and the health and wellbeing of those around us.
Social distancing can leave us feeling lonely. Not being able to celebrate with family and friends can cause us to feel disconnected, and missing major milestones such as graduations, birthdays and weddings is simply sad. Of course, there is also the stress that comes with worrying about getting sick or being sick, especially for those who are more vulnerable.
Aspen Valley Hospital encourages every member of our community to take advantage of these mental health tools and support systems, and to reach out if you or someone you know is struggling.
This quick survey is aimed at painting a bigger community picture around mental health in the time of COVID. Once the county has received enough responses, it will share the results, ensuring us all that we’re not alone in our feelings of stress and uncertainty.
Dedicated to providing the highest quality mental healthcare in the face of COVID-19, Mind Springs Health offers extensive therapy and counseling services for all ages, including virtual therapy and psychiatry. If you’re feeling stressed, anxious, angry or overwhelmed, or simply feel you need mental healthcare, call the toll-free mental health support line, 1-877-519-7505.
The Aspen Hope Center provides an array of services designed to decrease the stress of navigating the mental health system, including community education, school programs, crisis intervention, individual counseling, community collaborations and a 24-hour Hopeline — Aspen, 970-925-5858; Eagle River Valley, 970-306-4673; Garfield County, 970-945-3728.
Perhaps the most comprehensive resource regarding COVID-19, Centers for Disease Control outlines things to watch for if you feel you might be experiencing heightened stress levels during this time. Additionally, the CDC discusses ways you can reduce stress and take care of yourself and your community, help children cope during the COVID-19 outbreak, tips for emergency responders and front-line workers, and how employees can cope with job stress.
