I hope that this post finds everyone well. The past few weeks have been overwhelming not only in terms of my personal life but also professionally. COVID-19 is now a global outbreak, and it has changed our lives drastically over a short period.


I want to take the time to thank all essential personnel who find themselves working the frontlines during these difficult times.


For my mental health professionals, we are stronger when united and share what resources we have available in aiding our clients in processing their feelings and stressors related to the current pandemic.

I will only be sharing resources that I have found and have used myself. I intend to help and connect with you all in this challenging time by sharing my resources.


All resources linked on the list below are entirely free for personal use. I have added links and identified the authors of each resource.


This post will be short and sweet! As the pandemic continues, many mental health professionals are finding themselves navigating the world of teletherapy, prioritizing clients' safety and their own. At times, remote therapy and addressing this new stressor in our clients' lives can be a significant challenge.


In addition to learning the ins and outs of teletherapy, professionals may find themselves in need of also locating resources that can help clients begin to process their current feelings regarding the current state of the world. I am currently in an ongoing search of COVID-19 resources for children, teenagers, and families.


Below are the resources I have found thus far that I wanted to share. The list includes creative activities, books, psychoeducation, and training.
