Resources for Stress and Anxiety Reduction

What we are all experiencing with COVID-19 can make us feel stress, worry and anxiety. These reactions are natural and expected when we encounter situations that feel unfamiliar, uncertain, and outside of our direct control. In addition to looking to us to keep them physically healthy, children will need help understanding and working through “big feelings”.

On this page, you will find several resources to help support your conversations with your children about “big feelings” such as stress, worry and anxiety.

Anxiety/ Stress Reduction
