FREE COVID COUNSELING:
Anxiety, loneliness, anger and sense of loss are all perfectly normal reactions Iowans are having to the COVID-19 pandemic. But this crisis doesn’t affect everyone in the same way. You may feel fine and confident one day and overwhelmed the next. Your family members and colleagues may feel things differently – and at different times – than you. Sometimes we just need someone else to listen.
The state of Iowa has announced a new program to help Iowans cope. COVID Recovery Iowa offers free, confidential counseling to any Iowan who wants it. The program is also offering a number of activities, including yoga, cooking classes, parent resources and more, to help Iowans through this stressful time. As part of the programming there are virtual support groups for parents and for pre-teens. Find out more by emailing Chelsea.Siefken@pathwaysb.org
To find out more about COVID Recovery Iowa, go to covidrecoveryiowa.org, or simply call 844-775-WARM to be connected to resources. Remember, the virtual counseling sessions are free, confidential, and available to every Iowan.
