Identifying an increased risk of anxiety, depression, loneliness and substance use amid the COVID-19 crisis, the Community Affairs and Resource Center (CARC) is leading this project to build resiliency in children and families in underserved communities. With a focus on families who have young children and limited access to mental health services, CARC is providing a series of Resilience Skills for Psychological Wellness trainings and tailoring its case management approaches to increase well-being. In addition, CARC is providing complementary supports such as counseling and financial assistance with rent, utilities and essential items to participating households. By the end of this project, CARC will have equipped Monmouth County families with the skills and resources to address their own mental health needs and cope with stress, which can inform efforts to build resiliency throughout the state.
