As we protect ourselves against potential exposure to the coronavirus, keep in mind that social distancing does not mean social isolation. This four-page resource provides practical tips on taking care of our mental health and well-being. http://workplacementalhealth.org/getmedia/fd8a9b98-b491-4666-8f27-2bf59b00e475/Working-Remotely-During-COVID-19-CWMH-Guide
