“Self-care is so important, especially when presented with great uncertainty,” said MDH Secretary Robert R. Neall. “Mental health professionals and individuals throughout Maryland look to our Behavioral Health Administration for guidance. I want to make sure we give our community every tool available to get through this crisis.”

“Staying at home and using social distancing from others should not mean complete isolation,” said Jones. “Reaching out to people you trust is one of the best ways to reduce anxiety and depression, and we want to spread the word that you are not alone. There are resources available for people who want help.”
