NAMI | COVID-19 | Recommendations and Resources

NAMI offers these tips for people with mental illness:

  1. For anyone who is unsure about attending therapy sessions outside the home, especially those who the CDC has described as being at higher risk, you can ask your health care provider about tele-therapy or mental health services online.
  2. For anyone who is worried about access to prescribed medications, you can ask your health care provider about getting 90-day supplies vs. a 60 or 30-day supply. If this is not possible, we encourage you to refill your medications as soon as they are allowed.Note: If healthcare providers deny/decline making accommodations, challenge the decisions at least three times. Decision-makers on making health plan adjustments may change if/as conditions worsen.
  3. Listen to and follow your local public health care provider expectations.
  4. Provide self-care, especially if in the higher risk population as defined by the CDC. Pay attention to emerging symptoms. Reach out to family and friends.

The NAMI HelpLine Coronavirus Information and Resources Guide may be helpful if you have additional questions or concerns.

NAMI also strongly encourages people to not only check the CDC website daily for updates but also to listen for updates from local news and public health care providers.

“Many people who become infected with COVID-19 can stay home and treat their symptoms with over the counter medication unless their symptoms become severe. The primary symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. This online risk assessment tool will help our patients better understand what steps they should take if they are not feeling well.” – Dr. Nicholas Gilpin, Beaumont Health’s medical director of Infection Prevention and Epidemiology.

CDC | COVID-19 | Managing Anxiety and Stress

Managing Anxiety and Stress

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Coping with stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger.

People with preexisting mental health conditions should continue with their treatment and be aware of new or worsening symptoms. 

Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress. Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.

Things you can do to support yourself

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.

Call your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row.

Sharing the facts about COVID-19 and understanding the actual risk to yourself and people you care about can make an outbreak less stressful.
