Has your world been turned upside down because of COVID-19? Are you missing your friends? Are you feeling sad that you are missing out on experiences you would have been having? Are you feeling sad, angry, confused, or numb? Are some days just too overwhelming?
You are not alone. I often feel the same exact way as you do. I spent too much of my life feeling alone in my struggle, and I never want anyone else to feel the same way I did, so I am excited to launch this course to provide mental health tools and support for anyone who is having a tough time mentally due to the loss that COVID-19 has caused.
Several of us may have lost meaning, connection, motivation, sense of purpose, and several of us who are athletes have even lost a sense of identity, by having sports taken away from us. This course aims to help you cope with the loss you might be feeling, and provide you with tools and tips to practice mental wellness, self-care, and self-love during this tough time, and beyond. This course will help you to see that your mental health is important, despite what is happening in the world with COVID-19, and that you do not need to struggle in silence.
Although some content is geared towards the athletic experience, the content is applicable and translatable for all students (middle school, high school or college) who might be struggling right now. This course is designed for you to pick content to view (all or some) that is most relevant to you! There are videos, audio recordings, and written content for you to choose from!
I hope you choose to begin your journey today! It may seem scary, but it will be the first step of many that will make you proud of yourself for taking care of you!
Always remember, you are not alone. We are in this together.
