Build formal and informal neighborhood/community support systems

Creating community is important for building resilience during a public health emergency. Create and strengthen community in ways that help others and enable social connection, but that don’t require people to be in close contact (within 6 feet). After the loss of a loved one, use grief counseling services, support groups, or hotlines, especially those that can be offered over the phone or online, or seek support from a mental healthcare provider. Key words: Sidewalk chalk messages, drive and wave, offer to help, pick up groceries or medicines, send a note, put a sign in your window, attend community video meetings, subscribe to local communication channels and messages, funeral
