A Message from the Mayor

We are absolutely delighted to make this wonderful mental health and wellbeing resource available to our community.

As a city, we have always strongly supported all of our neighbors who may be struggling with mental wellness, or who may be supporting family members who are struggling.

We also support the importance of a stigma-free society and the need to be understanding and supportive and not judgemental.

And we recognize the incredible value of mental wellness, brain health, and happiness as individuals, as a family, and as a community. We hope you’ll make this invaluable resource a frequent stop and even resting place on your mental health journey.

Deanna Kayse, 

Mayor, Your City

COPING WITH COVID?

You're Probably Not

But you’re definitely not alone. Studies have shown that most of us are experiencing elevated levels of stress because of Covid. Whether it’s the global disruption, health fears, economic and financial worries, or the complete change in work and school patterns, it’s taking a toll.

But just because these worries exist doesn’t mean you have to be consumed by them. Our Covid Command Center has lots of expert advice, great articles, and helpful tools to help you manage your mind through this crisis.

STRESS MANAGEMENT CENTER

Stress is nothing to be ashamed of. Or ignored.

It’s a natural brain reaction and more than 80% of American workers say they deal with it often or constantly.

But you should never ignore it and you can manage and master it.
