Support for mental health caregivers

by | Apr 6, 2020 | COVID-19 Resources, Education

Health officials have asked us to keep social/physical distance right now to stop the spread of the coronavirus. In response to this change, many organizations are now offering online resources because they understand that needs continue or even rise during crisis.

Katherine Failor MSW, LISW-S, Outpatient & Home-Based Mental Health Therapist at Encompass recommends NAMI Basics OnDemand. This is a free, six-session online education program by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (more commonly known as NAMI). The series is designed for parents, caregivers and other family members who provide care for youth aged 22 or younger who are experiencing mental health symptoms. NAMI Basics OnDemand is an adaptation of the in-person course offered in 43 states by NAMI affiliates.

Additionally, Encompass counselors are here to support you and your family. Contact us today to receive support from home for you or your child through our new telemental health option.
