COVID-19 SEL Supports

As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread in our country, many communities are experiencing a heightened level of fear, anxiety, and worry during these uncertain times particularly as schools attempt to reopen. Parents, educators, youth development professionals, childcare providers, and others are looking for ways to help young people reduce, manage, and cope with the fears, worries and anxieties that might be provoked by this health crisis and continue to develop the social and emotional skills they will need for managing and coping with future life challenges. We’ve compiled a list of resources to support these efforts. Check back periodically, as we will be updating the list.
