Staying Resilient During the COVID-19 Outbreak
As our nation works to react to the COVID-19 virus, we at the Penn Collaborative are thinking about how we can best support others in the field. We are working to provide all of our typical support services without interruption, so we have shifted all in-person training, consultation, implementation support, and other activities to phone calls or online meetings. Our goal is to continue to support the work - especially at this time when these services are so critically needed - while decreasing in-person contact to slow the spread of the virus. If you have any questions or ideas about how we can support you and your clients during this time, please contact us.
We have a few additional pieces of information we want to highlight for you:
- We compiled a list of helpful tips and tricks for using telehealth in community mental health systems.
- You can view the just-released guidelines from OMHSAS regarding a preference for telehealth during the COVID-19 crisis.
- Please check out these links from the Inter-Agency Standing Committee for specific strategies to maintain resilience during these challenging times: general strategies as well as specific information for older adults, people with disabilities, children, community members, and front-line staff.
Finally, please view and share these friendly reminders about well-being during these challenging times:
