Mental Health Awareness Month begins today, and the Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health Department has statistics regarding how mental health has been affected since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. 67% of people globally are currently reporting higher levels of stress during the pandemic, and 54% are reporting feeling emotionally exhausted. However, despite all the uncertainty, the department has advice for how to manage your mental health. This includes getting enough sleep, exercising, and eating healthily, as well as limiting screen time. The department also reminds those who may be struggling to get help if they need it. The department recommends calling primary health care providers or mental health professionals if experiencing difficulty. Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health is also available to call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
