Provider Wellbeing During a Public Health CrisisA public health crisis can cause distress for all involved, including providers of behavioral health services. Attending to your personal wellbeing during this time is just as important as supporting the individuals you serve. Providers are encouraged to be aware of the toll that working with others in distress can have on their own mental wellbeing.

Engaging with Clients Over the Telephone and Using TextsAmid the current COVID-19 social distancing and stay-at-home orders many behavioral health providers have quickly shifted their primary interactions with clients to remote engagement. For some, this means using video conferencing software to simulate an in-person meeting. However, for many people access to a computer or tablet and reliable internet service is not available. For these individuals you may need to engage with them primarily, or solely, through the phone via voice calls or texts. This tool will provide information about strategies for quality engagement with clients using the phone.
