The Unspoken Toll of COVID

Women Worried h

Along with COVID, our community is experiencing increased rates of depression, anxiety, family challenges, substance use, and “burnout” as they adapt to all the changes the pandemic has created.

Many people who have never had behavioral health needs before are having a difficult time, aren’t sure what to do or what’s happening, or aren’t sure how to help a loved one.

In addition, we know that people are juggling their daily lives, whether working in health care, education, dealing with job loss, caring for their ill family members, or trying to parent with so much change in school.

The link below leads to a calendar of education and support events being offered by UPMC Western Behavioral Health at Safe Harbor aimed to offer support and resources during this time. The hitch is that we need help getting the word out!

These events are all virtual and can be easily accessed. Please help us reach sports leagues, clubs, bars, churches, service organizations, and people who may not be reached in our traditional pathways — connecting to us is very appreciated!

We are also able to provide on-site support or events. Reach out to Mandy Fauble at 814-451-2225 to discuss those options.
