Coping and Resilience During COVID-19

  • Encourage students to take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories about COVID-19, including social media if they are feeling overwhelmed or distressed.
  • Promote students eating healthy, exercising, getting sleep, and finding time to unwind.
  • Encourage students to talk with people they trust about their concerns and how they are feeling.
  • Transparently communicate with staff, teachers, students, and families, including about mental health support services available at the school. These critical communications should be accessible to individuals with disabilities and limited English proficiency.
  • Share facts about COVID-19 regularly through trusted sources of information to counter the spread of misinformation and mitigate fear.
  • Consider posting signages for the national distress hotline: 1-800-985-5990, or text TalkWithUs to 66746
  • Ensure continuity of mental health services, such as offering telehealth counseling.
  • Encourage students to call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255), 1-888-628-9454 for Spanish, or Lifeline Crisis Chat if they are feeling overwhelmed with emotions such as sadness, depression, anxiety, or feel like wanting to harm themselves or others.
