As of -- there are -- confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Mexico. Learn More
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic can cause New Mexicans of any age and any walk of life to feel overwhelmed, scared, anxious, or make it harder to cope with mental health conditions they struggled with before the pandemic.
Below you will find resources to help yourself, your family, your loved ones, your friends, your neighbors and others. Remember, even when things feel overwhelming, there is hope because there is help available.
To help combat strong feelings like anxiety, staying informed is important. The NewMexico.gov web site provides the best and latest information on staying well because it is updated regularly. Please use it as a one-stop resource.
As hard as you work to stay healthy, remember your emotions, thoughts, faith or spirituality, and relationships are just as important in staying healthy as washing your hands. Please consider reaching out to the mental health providers and/or faith and community leaders in your area to learn more about their resources and services.
