Whether you and your loved ones are hunkering down at home or taking precautions while continuing to perform essential work, there are many unique challenges you may be facing during the Coronavirus epidemic. You may feel differently than you normally do. You may be wondering if you’re “okay.” You may even already be living with mental health issues that have been aggravated by the COVID-19 crisis.

 

Most people are experiencing some amount of grief, stress, depression and worry. For some, these feelings are becoming overwhelming.

The good news is there are steps you can take, resources you can discover and people you can reach out to who can help you feel better.

 

Throughout this site, you’ll find information and resources compiled by the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction designed to help Hoosiers stay connected and maintain their well-being. These resources have been validated by local and national experts to ensure that you have access to reliable information that you can trust.

COVID-19 Resources

A lot has changed during this challenging time. As Hoosiers continue to follow state and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, you may need some additional support. Whether you are homeschooling, working from home or have lost your income as a result of coronavirus closures, there are a lot of things that may feel overwhelming or out of your control. One of the best ways to cope throughout this crisis is by staying informed and taking care of yourself and others as safely as possible.

To speak with someone directly about COVID-19, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) COVID-19 Call Center is open daily from 8 a.m. to midnight ET: 877-826-0011

Mental Health Self-Assessment

It can be hard to put a finger on a feeling, especially if you’re struggling with mood swings, loss of sleep, uncertainty and more. A simple self-assessment can help direct you to support services that can help.

 

If you’d like to know more about your own level of mental wellness, Mental Health America offers a variety of screenings that can help guide you in the right direction. The immediate results are meant to provide a quick snapshot of your mental health and not to be used as a medical diagnosis.
