OTOC recognizes that everyone’s mental health is being impacted from our new current reality. Stress, loneliness,isolation, fear, and sorrow are taking a toll on everyone. Existing mental health conditions are also exacerbated. We have compiled some resources we hope you find helpful. Remember, you are not alone.

*We are not mental health professionals. These resources and opportunities are provided by mental health organizations unaffiliated with OTOC*
