  • ESP Spotlight:

    As we all work to understand and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) it is natural to feel an increase in stress or anxiety. For some, the worry related to the situation may be particularly strong or difficult. The CDC has a comprehensive resource devoted to the mental health aspect of coping with the Coronavirus pandemic, and a resource on talking with children about the virus. You may also call ESP at 800-521-1377 to talk confidentially with a counselor about anxiety and coping strategies.

    Information around this outbreak is changing rapidly. The latest information is available at michigan.gov/coronavirus and cdc.gov/coronavirus.
