Together We Are Stronger

While one in five people in the U.S. will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, right now, we are all facing unique challenges that are impacting our mental health. Sheltering in place, social isolation, loss of income, or a job, are the devastating fallout and effects from an already uncertain and anxiety-filled time since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Celebrating Holidays & Family Traditions During COVID-19

Annual memorials, family traditions, and religious rituals provide a touchstone for comfort for a lot of families, as they are predictable and often acknowledge community strength and resilience. San Francisco families practicing shelter-in-place and social distancing will need to get creative via Messenger, Zoom, Houseparty, FaceTime, etc. to celebrate various religious and family holidays.

Public gatherings are cancelled and not prohibited and members of separate households should avoid gathering inside or outside, except to access or perform essential services in adherence to the current shelter in place order, to ensure the protection, safety, and health of our shared community. Please note many San Francisco Parks and Recreational Facilities remain closed or inaccessible to the public and the current shelter in place prohibits the gathering of groups and crowds.
