May is #MentalHealthMonth!

This month is a reminder that mental health is as important as physical health. During extraordinary times we can start to feel the stress and pressure build up and we must take steps to feel.

The CDC has some tips on things we can do to reduce the stress as we navigate our current situations.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.

Life after foster care was already tough. Now these Texans are facing the coronavirus pandemic, too.

Thanks to the Texas Tribune for featuring this article with commentary from The HAY Center, a program of HCPS.

Many youth are aging out with increasingly limited resources and HAY is there to help! Learn more at hcps.harriscountytx.gov.

As millions of Texans clamor for public benefits during the global health crisis, the pandemic has exposed gaps in support for young adults who have aged out of foster care. Many have experienced homelessness.

#ChildAbusePreventionMonth reminds us of the important role that community members play in looking out for our most vulnerable.

#SocialDistancing has changed how community members "look out" but it should never stop. Check in with neighbors, family and friends virtually to make sure things are okay and they are handling the pressures of #stayhomeworksafe with positive activities.

Our BEAR program is still in need of the items listed below and wants you to #stayhomeworksafe. Like, share and repost!

Together, we can make sure vulnerable children have the items they need during this time by shopping their Amazon Wishlist.

During these stressful and uncertain times, we at BEAR are doing everything possible to make sure we can provide for the children we serve.

BEAR's doors are currently opened and is considered an essential business at this time. We are working to keep our BEAR room stocked with all the essential items. With shortages on products like diapers, wipes, formula, and more happening in stores across our city, many of the families we serve are unable to purchase the resources they need to keep their children healthy and safe. To help ensure that our BEAR Room shelves remain full, please consider purchasing items through our Amazon wishlist to be delivered to our doors during our business hours (3572 E. TC Jester Blvd. Houston, TX 77018). We sincerely appreciate your dedication to our mission and thank you for your continued support despite the uncertainties that currently surround us.

FOR OUR FAMILIES PREPARING TO STAY HOME AND PRACTICE SAFETY FIRST:

Charging an exorbitant price for fuel, food, medicine, or another necessity during the Corona Virus emergency is price gouging and unlawful.

Harris County Attorney's Office Vince Ryan has the authority to file civil actions to stop these kinds of activities. If you feel that you are being unfairly charged for necessary goods or services such as medicine, fuel, food, or, lodging, raise the issue of price gouging with the provider. Speak to them respectfully but be frank.

If you are unable to resolve the matter, please contact the office of the Harris County Attorney at [email protected] or at 832-839-6941.

To report restaurants, bars, or nightclubs violating current public health orders to cease dine in operations call 832-839-6941.

The Harris County Attorney's Office represents the County, its departments, elected and appointed officials, and employees in all civil matters that involve county business. Our Office also represents the Harris County Hospital District, the Harris County Flood Control District, the Harris County Ap...
