The COVID-19 pandemic is new and unexpected. This situation can be unsettling, and everyone will experience these events in their own way. It is completely natural to feel sad, stressed, confused, or worried in times of uncertainty. Make sure to care for your mental health and to ask for help if you feel overwhelmed.
