Mental health is just as important as physical health. During these difficult times of a pandemic, it’s more important than ever to include self-care in our daily lives. At Tulalip Community Health, we want to provide support to youth that are home on quarantine. We hope these items can help pass the time while at home. We all must do our part to stop the spread of COVID and stay home if exposed to COVID-19 or have tested positive for COVID-19.
