Mindfulness Resources for Parents, Teens, and Young Adults

Here is a list of helpful resources for mindfulness and mental health practices amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

College Counseling Updates

Universities are responding rapidly to COVID-19 within the context of their own communities. In the coming weeks, some may be canceling classes, some may cancel admissions events and tours, and some may cancel "yield events" for admitted students in the bay area or on-campus. Below are updates/cancellations that we are aware of. If you are a junior or senior or a parent of a student in the class of 2020 or 2021, you should also be checking university admission websites and your emails. Here is an excellent resource for now.

Preventing Illness

Public health officials recommend the following steps people should take to reduce their risk of getting and spreading any viral respiratory infections. These include:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.
  • Stay at home and away from others if you are feeling ill.
