The Division of Mental Health wants to support Parents (pdf), Teachers, School Administrators and Students in addressing everyone's needs during this infectious disease outbreak. Included in this webpage you will find resources to help you talk with students of all ages (pdf). We also want to ensure that adults are taking care of their own behavioral health needs (pdf) during this time. While this time can cause stress (pdf) for some, there are resources (pdf) available.
