HOW YOU CAN HELP
Take part in Angelenos in Action! Help track COVID-19 symptoms and slow the spread in our communities.
Angelenos in Action is a new voluntary, text message-based, public health survey of Los Angeles County residents. The goal is to find out how COVID-19 is affecting our health in real time, and identify the areas and communities most in need of resources.
Once a week, survey participants will get a yes/no question about how you are feeling. If you feel unwell, you'll get two more yes/no questions about COVID-19-like symptoms. That's it!
Participating takes a bit of your time, but you'll be helping in a big way. L.A. County residents over the age of 18 can sign up to participate in the survey. Your information and data will be completely private, and you can stop participating anytime.
DON'T FORGET SELF-CARE!
COVID-19 has put all of us under a lot of stress. Some will feel worry, sadness and loneliness.
There are many services here to help anyone who feels stressed, anxious or lonely. CalHOPE is one — a free, crisis counseling, peer support call line (1.833.317.HOPE) to talk you through your struggles.
We're all having to change the way we do things. It's been challenging to our spirits, and can wear us down. L.A. Care Behavioral Health Director Dr. Michael Brodsky talked to KNX News about our pandemic fatigue.
L.A. Care offers more information and resources to help you take care of your mind and spirit, as well as your body.
