COVID-19 Office Hours: Self-Care and Stress Management

As the National Council for Mental Wellbeing works tirelessly to provide timely resources for our member agencies during the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize that the magnitude of the pandemic impacts every mental health and substance use recovery practice in this country.

In response, we are launching a series of learning sessions designed to foster peer engagement and help you respond to the surge in care demands that you now face. The sessions will include updates on recent regulatory and payment actions pertinent to the area, discussion of current areas of most pressing concern and the exchange of ideas for intervention, and early identification and discussion of new concerns rising or anticipated and collaborative support as we all deal with these challenges.

Our first learning session is launching this week and will focus on Self Care and Stress Management. Other learning sessions will include several focus areas related to COVID-19:

  • Self Care and Stress Management
  • Finance and Operations
  • Substance Use Disorder Services
  • Child, Youth and Families
  • Residential Treatment Services
  • Telehealth and Telemedicine

How will it work? Each session will be guided by your questions and most pressing needs, and facilitated by expert staff from the National Council and Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions. We hope to use these sessions to share best practices and strategies you have found successful in addressing COVID-19 across states and communities.
