The County of Santa Clara Behavioral Health Services Department supports the wellbeing of our County family, friends and colleagues. When you hear, read, or watch news about an outbreak of infectious disease,  you may feel anxious and show signs of stress—even when the outbreak affects people far from where you live and you are at low or no risk of getting sick, and especially when the outbreak is affecting our community as we are currently experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic. These signs of stress are normal and may be more likely pronounced in people with loved ones in parts of the world affected by the outbreak. During an infectious disease outbreak, take care for your own physical and mental health and reach out in kindness to those affected by the situation.

In an effort to support your wellness the county BHSD has developed some information sheets to help you cope effectively during these times:
