As we begin Mental Health Month, we understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges for people in so many different ways – financially, socially, and, of course, mentally and emotionally. At this time, it is even more important to provide care to yourself and to reach out if you need additional support.
This pandemic has left many of us feeling isolated and anxious due to the uncertainties of our current lives, as well as our future. We are all experiencing this adverse event of the pandemic collectively as a society. Within that collective adverse experience, we know that survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and human trafficking continue to experience trauma and violence at the interpersonal level as well.
During Mental Health Month, we especially want all survivors to know that our Therapy Department is here and continuing to provide therapy services via telehealth during the pandemic. You are not alone. Please reach out to us if you are in need of therapy services or if you have questions about our program.
Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and well-being. This May, we will continue to highlight issues related to mental health. Keep an eye on our social media for tips and trainings!
