As the world faces unprecedented fear and uncertainty, the mental health community understands that we are stronger together. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the nation’s most credible mental health organizations to collaborate on a free resource hub to help people address their mental health needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the mental health of every American. We hope that by pushing these free tools out as widely as possible, we can empower individuals, families, and health providers to prioritize mental health and take necessary actions when needed. Connectedness and support for one another will get us through this.”
Arthur C. Evans Jr., PhD., CEO of the American Psychological Association
“Health care providers and support staff are at the vanguard of this fight and may feel strained by the needs of those who rely on their care. The COVID-19 Mental Health Resource Hub was designed for them as well as for individuals. We have worked to ensure that our resources include information to support the mental wellness of health care professionals and others working on the front lines in communities across the country.”

“The coalition we’ve built is unprecedented — never before have nonprofit advocacy and professional groups, the nation’s leading healthcare payors, academic medical institutions, and a government agency come together so quickly to address an urgent mental health need such as caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re gratified to see so many key stakeholders in the mental health field unite to answer the call. Mental health care services are and will be essential to provide to the public and also the health care providers and allied support personnel on the front lines during the crisis but also in the months and years thereafter.”
