It's been one month since the first COVID-19 case was confirmed here in Tulsa and so much has changed since then.

Everyday is so different for so many and experts say those changes can affect anyone's mental or emotional health.

Family and Children's Services is now partnering with the myStrength app and offering it for free to anyone who needs it.

The app provides doctor approved techniques and skills to maintaining emotional and mental wellness.

It tackles everything from addiction issues to depression, thoughts of suicide, anxiety, stress and the physical symptoms that come with them.

If you've never dealt with emotional or mental health issues, there are some tell-tale signs you could be struggling with something.

"So, you might see a difference in the way you’re sleeping or if your appetite changes or if you feel depressed or if you’re just not sure how to get through your day because everything is not normal, and it’s okay to recognize that," said Dee Harris with Family and Children's Services.
