~ Not Currently Taking New Appointments ~
As COVID-19 cases are on the rise in our community, a group of providers have come together to offer services pro bono to those working the front lines of this pandemic. If you or anyone you know could use these services, please share this information. Your sacrifices are not unnoticed and your mental health matters.
The New York State Office of Mental Health is pleased to announce the development of Coping Circles - an initiative providing free six-week support and resilience group therapy sessions for people impacted by the COVID-19 public health crisis.
Coping Circles are available to all New Yorkers, ages 18 and older and are available in different languages. Sessions for Coping Circles will be held by video or phone and facilitated by licensed mental health professionals.Coping Circles will be available throughout the summer through the end of August 2020.
We encourage participation from healthcare workers, first responders, COVID-19 survivors, those who have lost loved ones to COVID-19, and those who have experienced COVID-19 related job loss. Specialized Coping Circles for these groups will be created pending demand and availability.
New Yorkers interested in joining Coping Circles can register at https://lnkd.in/gaXFAAN, a secure and HIPAA-compliant web platform.
