Coping with Stress During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Communicate with Family & Friends
It is normal to feel sad, stressed, confused, scared or angry during a crisis. Talking to people you trust can help. Contact your friends and family.
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
If you must stay at home, maintain a healthy lifestyle -including proper diet, sleep, exercise and social contacts with loved ones at home and by email and phone with other family and friends.
Avoid Destructive Habits
Don't use smoking, alcohol or other drugs to deal with your emotions. If you feel overwhelmed, talk to a health worker or counsellor. Have a plan, where to go to and how to seek help for physical and mental health needs if required.
Get the Facts
Gather information that will help you accurately determine your risk so that you can take reasonable precautions. Find a credible source you can trust such as World Health Organization website or, a local or state public health agency.
Limit Media Consumption
Limit worry and agitation by lessening the time you and your family spend watching or listening to media coverage that you perceive as upsetting.

Where to Start

If you are under 13, you need permission from your parent or guardian. If you are a parent, you can refer your child for a WISe screen at any time, but after age 13, a child must consent to services. No intake is needed to have a WISe screening.
