Balancing the daily demands between work and personal responsibilities is not always easy. Over the last few months, you’ve probably had to take on more roles than usual — employee, parent, spouse, school teacher and camp counselor — just to name a few. If you’re finding it somewhat overwhelming to balance the needs of your children and work demands, and still find time to take care of your mental health during the COVID-19 public health emergency, you’re not alone.

Did you know that you have access to tools and resources available through your Horizon BCBSNJ health plan?
