Work on writingguided reading 101. On behalf of the Brain Health Initiative (BHI) we are sending positive thoughts of wellness to each of you. The COVID-19 pandemic impacts every person, directly and indirectly, in numerous ways, including brain health at the individual and community level. As the Brain Health Initiative team came together to think through how best to provide support during this crisis, we were driven by the numerous stresses (brain health risk factors) individuals are and may experience and need to build resilience against.

During this time of uncertainty, BHI remains firmly committed to our mission of promoting and protecting brain health and fighting brain illness across the lifespan, through science, innovation, education and action. A trauma like the coronavirus outbreak, and the resulting stress, can threaten brain health in the moment and also can create numerous long term risk factors for future brain illness. With this awareness, the Brain Health Initiative is working to bring preventative resources and action steps to the Florida Suncoast region.

Boosting brain health isalways essential, and especially during times of distress. The question is notwhether we will get through the ordeal that lies ahead— because we will. Theimportant questions, from the Brain Health Initiative perspective, are how wellwe can work together to protect the greater good, to promote brain healthduring this period, to prevent the potential spiral of brain illness, as wellas how much we will learn from this unprecedented challenge and make necessarychanges for the future.
