The 2020 pandemic challenged all of us.
Drug use and suicide rates increased. The elderly were isolated. Even young people battled depression.
The 2020 pandemic impacted more than our physical health. It affected our mental health and, unfortunately, no one wanted to talk about it.
However, SDC did several things to highlight mental health. It targeted those suffering in silence.
SDC’s health and wellness team distributed self-care kits to local group homes, detention centers and community centers.
In each self-care kit, there was literature about mindfulness and counseling resources. There were coloring books and even provisions to make a cup of tea to help eliminate stress. It was an important gesture that, as pandemic data suggested, had the potential to save lives. Watch the video.
