Q: Do you have any advice for my wife, who is feeling overwhelmed by the COVID-19 outbreak? Do you offer mental healthcare?
A: Yes, we offer psychiatric services. Accordia Health is an integrated care model, and that means we offer primary and mental health care under one roof.
There are some things you can put in place to help cope with overwhelming events.
Tune out media that can produce anxiety or fear. It is okay to stay informed but do not spend more than 30 minutes a day on news media. Find out what you need to know to be safe then tune out.
Tune in to your support system. Reach out to family and friends by text or phone so that you stay connected and share information about your day, your hobbies, or your concerns.
Tune out, negative people. You don’t need doom and gloom right now. Keep it positive or keep it moving!
Tune in to your resources. If you need more support than you can get from friends and family, reach out to Accordia Health. We are here to make sure you get what you need, and there are many ways we can help by phone.
