Mental health resources to navigate challenging times

As educators, your students, families and friends look to you and rely on you for strength and leadership. But especially in times of crisis, it’s important to make your own mental health a priority. If mental health isn’t something you’ve given a lot of thought to, or if you’re just looking to expand the tools you have for managing your mental health, here are some resources that may help.

Please note: these resources are being shared to encourage educators to find the right tools that work for them. There is no intention to push any religious or political messages.
