  • A long-term care resident
  • An adult with underlying medical conditions
  • An adult at higher risk of COVID-19 exposure because of their job or living situation

Mental Health and Wellness Resources for Young Adults

Child care

The pandemic has impacted many New Jerseyans’ mental health, especially children who may be more susceptible to social isolation, may be going through stressful periods with their return to school, and who may not have the tools to meet their mental health needs. Feelings of stress and anxiety are normal and to be expected, but if children or adolescents are exhibiting unusual behavior for extended periods, they may be in need of additional support and care.

Mental health and wellness resources for youth, parents, and educators are available on a new page on the COVID-19 Info Hub: covid19.nj.gov/youthhelp.
