As the number of people affected by COVID-19 increases, so does their heightened sense of uncertainty and anxiety.
Treating the mental health effects of COVID-19 is as important as treating the physical effects. And for the one in five who already have mental health conditions – or the one in two who are at risk of developing them – we need to take action now.
Harbor is here to help.
- Therapy and Case Management services are being administered via tele phone and tele video to patients in their own homes. Services being delivered include assessments, psychiatric evaluations, individual therapy, day treatment, family intervention, substance use counseling and group services.
- Harbor has purchased 4,000 tablets to help keep patients connected to their providers. Harbor will deliver a data enabled device to patient homes to enable communication with our Board Certified Psychiatrists, Nurse Practitioners, Therapists, and Case Managers. The tablets are pre-loaded with data the patients need, internet connectivity for telemedicine sessions, email and a wellness app.
- Vocational services continue to be offered via telehealth. Individuals between the ages of 14-24 who live in Lucas County and have experienced a job loss or unemployment can receive services to help them get back on their feet. In partnership with the Ohio Means Jobs Lucas County Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program and the YMCA of Greater Toledo, Harbor’s Youth Enhancement services can provide services such as resume development, job training and education and driver’s license assistance.
