  • Mental health resources

    For individuals with behavioral health needs such as mental health or substance use disorders, social distancing can be especially challenging. Social connectedness becomes even more important. To promote this need, the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Providers (NYAPRS) has started the “Strive for Five” campaign to reach out to individuals with mental and health and substance use disorders; encouraging folks to reach out to individuals with substance use disorders and mental health.

    While training in first aid is frequent in the health and human services field, many are unsure how to respond to those with behavioral health needs. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) trains individuals (often members of the community) to identify and respond to someone who may need support. This may be an important resource to train staff, residents/persons served, and family members.

    If you know someone who may need care, the United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) operates a National Helpline. Many treatment providers have adapted to allow for social distancing and preventing COVID-19 infections.

    Accreditation can be one important tool in identifying quality providers. CARF is a leading accreditor of behavioral health and opioid treatment programs.
