Volunteer service promotes mental health. Did you know that volunteering has been shown to reduce stress and increase positive feelings of wellbeing? Even during the pandemic, there are many ways to contribute your time and talent virtually. Visit the Mayor’s Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service to get started!

But if you find that your path back from grief, illness, or disappointment is slow, it doesn’t mean you’re not resilient. If you can find an empathetic listener on the Warmline who makes you feel understood, or on the Philadelphia Crisis Line 24/7 if you need immediate help.
