Camden, N.J. – May is Mental Health Awareness Month and the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is highlighting the variety of services available during the COVID-19 pandemic for those who need help.

“Depression and anxiety can affect everyone during uncertain times like these, especially in areas hit hard by the virus like New Jersey,” said Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer. “It’s not a sign of weakness to ask for help, what’s important is to be open about what you’re feeling so you can be matched with the right resources.”

In any uncertain situation, fear and anxiety are normal reactions. Inability to perform daily tasks, difficulty sleeping or eating, or extreme mood swings are all signs that you might need to reach out and ask for assistance.

Listed below are some of the local and national resources available:
