Remote Access to Mental Health Care

The corona virus pandemic has changed the way we can deliver mental health services. To minimize the impact of face-to-face contact in facilities, providers can use telehealth services to deliver virtual care to patients during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. Telehealth services can provide the essential mental health care to patients but minimize the risk of transmitting the virus that causes COVID-19.

The Loss of an Angel

In October 1988, President Ronald Reagan Proclaimed October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. “When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn’t a word to describe them. This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world. It is also meant to inform and provide resources for parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirths, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes.”

The Loss of Normalcy

The world has changed as we know it, and even though it is supposed to be temporary, we know that things are being affected all around us.  We walk into stores and businesses with everyone wearing masks and hand sanitizer readily for use.  We stock up on food and toiletries waiting for the day when shelves may run out.  The majority of schools are running their classrooms online.  Food and groceries are now being delivered in a frenzy.  Some of us have lost our jobs, and our sense of connection with others.  And for the most part, we have lost our sense of security and safety.

National Suicide Awareness Month

National Suicide Awareness Month

Each Mind Matters | National Suicide Awareness Month is especially important this year as mental health issues have increased considerably due to the pandemic.

The Suicide Prevention Lifeline and other mental health organizations, allies, advocates, and SURVIVORS in the US, and around the world, promote and raise awareness of suicide prevention during the month of September. Now more than ever, we are all trying to protect our mental health and cope with life’s uncertainties. Currently, our country is in the height of a pandemic that exacerbates the national suicide epidemic. Bringing attention to the problem of suicide, this campaign strives to strengthen the fight against suicide and eliminate the stigma surrounding the topic of suicide. Increasing awareness can also encourage people to reach out for mental health support. Making suicide awareness a continued focus, we can educate and engage people about prevention and the warning signs surrounding suicide. If you or someone you know is going through a crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-TALK (8255).
