COVID-19 Resources


We realize these are difficult and uncertain times and that can cause anxiety for many people, even those who have never experienced it before, and that is to be expected and okay.  

It is how we work together as a community to support each other that is and will be important.   

We will be doing our best to keep this page updated with resources for parents and youth to help take care of our mental health, as well as substance misuse recovery supports and access to treatment.


Family Resources:

  • NAMI NH recommends a great online resource for teens, a Facebook group that is managed by teens, for teens:  Life Under Construction 

  • Looking for something fun to do? Join the Facebook group - New Hampshire Bear Hunt - "To help children stave off boredom during their coronavirus quarantines, people all over the world are placing stuffed animals in their windows so that kids can go on “bear hunts” in their neighborhoods. This is the New Hampshire edition of just that! Make it fun but keep it safe. Feel free to share your “Bear” sighting while giving hints as to where your bear may be hiding. No exact addresses are needed as we want this to be fun and engaging."
